Breast Cancer is now the most common cancer amongst Indian women. Approximately 1 in 22 Indian women suffer from this disease during their lifetime. A high incidence has also been noticed in parts of North India like Gurgaon, Delhi NCR, Punjab.
Breast cancer is curable if defected early. If breast cancer is detected at an early stage, another advantage is that mastectomy or full removal of the breast might not be required.
In this patient education video, Dr. Rohan Khandelwal (Breast Cancer Surgeon in Delhi NCR) talks about some common facts and figures regarding Breast cancer in India. In this Hindi video, he talks in detail about the risk factors and the best way to detect this disease at an early stage.
It is important to realise that the most common presentation of breast cancer is in the form of a painless lump in the breast (not painful).

Breast cancer is the most common cancer amongst Indian women. Majority of these cancers arise from the 15-20 ducts present in the breast. These cancers can be of two types, invasive and non invasive. These terms are often mentioned in the pathology report after the breast cancer surgeon does the biopsy. This simple patient information video explains these terms and their practical implications.
If the patient is diagnosed with an invasive cancer, then the patient often requires chemotherapy, whereas, if the patient has non invasive cancer (ductal carcinoma in situ), chemotherapy can be avoided.
To diagnose the type of breast cancer, a breast biopsy is required (tru-cut or core needle biopsy). FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) is not useful in distinguishing between the two types of cancers.

Nipple discharge is a common problem with which ladies present to our Breast Clinic. Nipple discharge can be of many types ranging from clear fluid to frank blood.
Greenish nipple discharge is commonly seen in ladies between the ages of 40-55 years. It is common in ladies who smoke and those are suffering from diabetes.
Breast Cancer should be ruled out in all these patients by doing a triple assessment, i.e. clinical examination, imaging & biopsy. Once cancer has been ruled out, patient should be re-assured and if there is any inflammation, antibiotics can be given. In case of persistent discharge and a lump, the implicated ducts can be surgically removed.
We don’t remember days, we remember moments
It’s always a delightful moment to see the smile on a patient’s face, when they conquer breast cancer.
