The Breast Centre at CK Birla Hospital for Women

After successfully running a Breast Cancer unit for the last 5 years at Gurgaon, me and my team have taken up the challenge to set up another Breast Cancer unit at CK Birla Hospital for Women, Gurugram.

At the Breast Centre, we would be providing comprehensive breast services ranging from non cancerous to cancerous disorders. Everything from state of the art surgical facilities to an aesthetically designed chemotherapy lounge will be available under one roof.

Types of Breast Cancer – Invasive vs Non invasive

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.
