Breast Cancer


Like other cancers, breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. Breast cancer occurs as a result of abnormal changes or mutation in the genes responsible for regulating the healthy growth of breast. The genes are in each cell’s nucleus, which acts as the “controller” of concern cell. 
Mutation in gene disturb/mislead the normal process of the cell, because of that cells starts abnormaly and uncontrolled  growth, producing more cells just like it and forming a tumor like structure.

This abnormal tumour-like growth can be benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous property). Benign tumours are close to normal in appearance, they grow comparatively slowly, and they do not invade or spread to nearby tissue and other parts of the body. As malignant cells have the potential to grow as cancer If they left unchecked or untreated, they eventually can spread to nearby tissue and beyond an original tumour to other parts of the body.

  • Angiosarcoma
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)

Chemotherapy for Breast cancer

Chemotherapy may be given before surgery to slow the growth of rapidly growing breast cancer. Or it might be given to shrink a more extensive breast cancer before surgery (this may mean breast-conserving surgery is an option, rather than a mastectomy).?People with certain types of breast cancer, such as triple negative or inflammatory breast cancer, or whose breast cancer is HER2 positive, may be more likely to have chemotherapy before surgery.

Chemotherapy is given before surgery is called primary or neo-adjuvant chemotherapy.?

Secondary breast cancer:

Chemotherapy can be given to people with secondary breast cancer when breast cancer cells have spread to another part of the body.
Chemotherapy can shrink or slow the growth of secondary breast cancer. It can also help reduce some symptoms.
