    Treatment Options for Breast Cancer

    The various treatment options available to treat breast cancer are surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy. These are generally given in combinations.

    Surgery is the preferred line of treatment. There are types of surgeries depending on the health and spread of the cancer-

     

     

     

  • Breast-sparing surgery: This is called as breast conserving surgery wherein only the tumor is removed and the breasts are spared. This can be a lumpectomy, segmental mastectomy or an excisional biopsy to remove the whole lump.

     

  •  

     

     

     

  • Mastectomy: In this, the entire breast or maximum breast tissue is removed. Usually one lymph node in the underarm is removed to check for cancer cells. If the cancer cells are found, then further treatment is essential.

     

  •  

     

     

     

  • Plastic Surgery: This is for breast reconstruction, i.e. to rebuild the shape and size of the breast.
  •  

     

    Radiation: X-rays are used to kill cancer cells, given either orally or intravenously.

     

     

     

  • External radiation therapy: The radiation comes from a machine outside the body.

     

  •  

     

     

     

  • Internal radiation therapy or brachytherapy: A radioactive substance is inserted into the breast and kept there for a few minutes. When the substance is removed, there is no radioactivity in the body.
  •  

     

    Hormone therapy is also called anti-hormone treatment. If the tumor has hormone receptors, then hormone therapy is considered. Hormone therapy refrains the cancer cells from using the natural hormones like estrogen and progesterone to facilitate their growth.

    Tamoxifen: This prevents the cancer from returning and developing into new cancers. This slows or stops the cancer cell growth. You have to take this pill for 5 years. There are side effects, which include irregular menses, irritation of, skin around the vagina, vaginal discharge, nausea and vomiting.

    LH-RH agonist: This drug prevents the ovaries from producing estrogen. This is given in an injection under the skin in the stomach area. Side effects are hot flashes, headaches, weight gain and thinning bones.

    Surgery to remove the ovaries: If the ovaries are removed then estrogen production automatically stops. However, the side effects are adverse than a natural menopause.

    Chemotherapy is the application of anticancer drugs to kill cancer cells. These drugs are given orally or through a vein. This process normally happens on an outpatient basis. However, this therapy kills the normal cells along with the cancer cells. Some of the side effects of this drug are fatigue, loss of hair, nausea, vomiting, low levels of healthy blood cells, mouth and lip sores, etc. This is used as a single line of treatment or in combination with surgery or radiation.

    Targeted therapy

    Targeted therapy consists of drugs that block the growth of breast cancer cells. For example, targeted therapy blocks the action of an abnormal protein like HER2 that stimulates the growth of breast cancer cells.

    Treatment for breast cancer nowadays can be very effective as there are many advanced forms of treatments available. Clinical trials are still under research. Women with breast cancer have many alternatives to cure the disease and enhance quality of life. However, a general awareness regarding this disease and regular checkups especially after menopause are essential.
