SURGERY – THE MAINSTAY OF TREATMENT

  • The early stages involve removal of the tumor with normal breast tissue called wide local excision
  • In advanced stages-removal of the breast or mastectomy is done
  • This may be combined with removal of the lymph nodes from the arm pit called axillary dissection

THE OTHER TREATMENTS

  • Radiotherapy
  • Hormonal therapy
  • Chemotherapy

POST SURGERY

Many women are relieved or excited to be finished with breast cancer treatment. But it can also be a time of worry for women who fear their cancer could come back, or who feel lost without the same level of care from their cancer care team.

Even after you have completed breast cancer treatment, your doctors will want to watch you closely. It’s very important to go to all of your follow-up appointments. During these visits, your doctors will ask if you are having any problems and may do exams and lab tests or imaging tests to look for signs of cancer or treatment side effects.

SPECIALISED SERVICE

We offer reconstruction service to patients to make them feel as normal as possible and restore their body image and confidence after mastectomy.

The breast mound can be recreated by the use of prosthesis (silicone implants) or by using the patients own body tissues called flap reconstruction.

The esthetic results are long lasting and excellent. The nipple and areola are reconstructed in a staged manner.
