Breast Conservation Surgery-

Wide excision of only the lump with axillary nodes, leaving as much breast as possible. This results in near normal breast even after the surgery.

Modified Radical Mastectomy-

When cancer is found in more than one part of the breast or the breast is so small that the wide excision is not possible, breast cancer specialists use modified radical mastectomy approach for breast cancer treatment. This breast cancer surgery involves removal of entire breast and the axillary lymph nodes.

Modified Radical Mastectomy with Reconstruction-

Many women feel unhappy with the idea of losing their breast and thus choose the option of immediate reconstruction of breast. The breast reconstruction is done by a plastic surgeon. This is done by using the patient's own breast tissue or an implant.

Chemotherapy-

Many a times, only surgery is not sufficient to treat the breast cancer. The breast cancer surgery is thus followed by Chemotherapy in such cases. Chemotherapy entails giving drugs to the patient to destroy cancer cells. The chemotherapy can be given as Neoadjuvant,Adjuvant and Palliative chemotherapy.

Radiation Therapy-

In order to treat breast cancer effectively in patients who underwent breast conservation surgery, radiation therapy is always given to kill cancer cells that may still be there after the surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy X-rays to destroy cancer cells.

Hormonal Therapy-

Hormonal therapy medicines are whole-body (systemic) treatment for hormone-receptor-positive breast cancers. Hormone receptors are like ears on breast cells that listen to signals from hormones. These signals "turn on" growth in cells that have receptors. Hormonal therapy medicines can be used to lower the risk of early-stage hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer coming back, lower the risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in women who are at high risk but haven't been diagnosed with breast cancer and help shrink or slow the growth ofadvanced-stage or metastatic hormone-receptor-positive breast cancers.
