This animated video is an informative elaboration on treatment of breast cancer. The treatment options for breast cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. There are several surgical options depending on the severity of the cancer. A lumpectomy removes the tumour and a small amount of neighbouring tissues. Mastectomy involves removing the entire breasts and its tissues. Sentinel lymph node removal is typically performed in addition to lumpectomies and mastectomies. Here your surgeon will remove the lymph nodes closest to the tumour and check it for the presence of the cancer cells. If this node is clean, it may not be necessary to remove more lymph nodes. A prophylactic mastectomy, is a preventive surgery for high-risk woman that removes the entire breast to lower the risk of breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiations to kill the cancer cells or to keep them from growing. Internal radiation therapy can be used to treat the cancer from the inside of your body using needles, wires or catheters. Watch the video to know more on the treatment of breast cancer.
