Breast cancer surgery is the primary treatment for most types of breast cancer. Mastectomy and lumpectomy are two different surgical methods for removing tumors. You may have additional surgeries to look for cancer in your lymph nodes or to reconstruct your breast after removal.

Get in touch with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible with the best available treatment for your issue.

Breast cancer is a disease in which cells in the breast grow out of control. There are different kinds of breast cancer. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer.

A breast is made up of three main parts: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue. The lobules are the glands that produce milk. The ducts are tubes that carry milk to the nipple. The connective tissue (which consists of fibrous and fatty tissue) surrounds and holds everything together. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts or lobules.

Breast cancer can spread outside the breast through blood vessels and lymph vessels. When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it is said to have metastasized.

Kinds of Breast Cancer :

The most common kinds of breast cancer are include ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, inflammatory breast cancer, and metastatic breast cancer.

  1. Invasive ductal carcinoma. The cancer cells begin in the ducts and then grow outside the ducts into other parts of the breast tissue. Invasive cancer cells can also spread, or metastasize, to other parts of the body.
  2. Invasive lobular carcinoma. Cancer cells begin in the lobules and then spread from the lobules to the breast tissues that are close by. These invasive cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body.

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a breast disease that may lead to invasive breast cancer. The cancer cells are only in the lining of the ducts, and have not spread to other tissues in the breast.


Breast cancer symptoms can vary for each person. Possible signs of breast cancer include:

  • A change in the size, shape or contour of your breast.
  • A mass or lump, which may feel as small as a pea.
  • A lump or thickening in or near your breast or in your underarm that persists through your Menstrual Cycle
  • A change in the look or feel of your skin on your breast or nipple (dimpled, puckered, scaly or inflamed).
  • Redness of your skin on your breast or nipple.
  • An area that’s distinctly different from any other area on either breast.
  • A marble-like hardened area under your skin.
  • A blood-stained or clear fluid discharge from your nipple.

What causes breast cancer?

Breast cancer develops when abnormal cells in your breast divide and multiply. But experts don’t know exactly what causes this process to begin in the first place.

However, research indicates that are several risk factors that may increase your chances of developing breast cancer. These include:

  • Age. Being 55 or older increases your risk for breast cancer.
  • Sex. Women are much more likely to develop breast cancer than men.
  • Family history and genetics. If you have parents, siblings, children or other close relatives who’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, you’re more likely to develop the disease at some point in your life. About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are due to single abnormal genes that are passed down from parents to children, and that can be discovered by genetic testing.
  • Tobacco use has been linked to many different types of cancer, including breast cancer.
  • Alcohol use. Research indicates that drinking alcohol can increase your risk for certain types of breast cancer.
  • Having obesity can increase your risk of breast cancer and breast cancer recurrence.
  • Radiation exposure. If you’ve had prior radiation therapy — especially to your head, neck or chest — you’re more likely to develop breast cancer.
  • Hormone replacement therapy. People who use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) have a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.


Its treatment depends on the stage of cancer. It may consist of chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy and surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is dairy (milk) linked to a higher risk of breast cancer?

The dietary guidelines recommend women consume 3 cups of dairy daily (note: cups of dairy include foods containing dairy). The dairy group includes calcium-fortified soymilk, along with milk, cheese, cottage cheese and yogurt.

2. Can men get breast cancer?

Yes, it’s possible for men to get breast cancer. Anyone with breast tissue is capable of developing breast cancer. However, it’s less common, with about one out of every 100 breast cancer cases in the United States developing in men, according to the Centers for Disease

3. When should I begin screening for breast cancer?

The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends the following early-detection screenings for women at average risk for breast cancer:

  • Optional mammograms beginning at age 40
  • Annual mammograms for women ages 45 to 54
  • Mammograms every two years for women 55 and older, unless they choose to stick with yearly screenings.
  • MRIs and mammograms for some women at high risk of breast cancer.

4. What type of doctor should I see if I think I have breast cancer?

Patients who believe they may have breast cancer should talk to their primary care physician or OB/GYN.

Success Stories

What Our Patients Say

Ranjit kaur

Staff is helpful. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, a lump was there as per initial tests. We were suggested the usual treatment at other hospitals, which included chemo and surgery. We visited the place and my mother's condition improved, given the fact she wasn't subjected to any of the Conventional cancer treatments. Satisfied with the treatment..
