Breast Cancer Stages and Groups

0

Doctors have many ways to find out stages of breast cancer and breast cancer can be determined/examined by physical exams, biopsies, X-rays, bone scans and other images, and blood tests.

Stages of Breast Cancer….

  • Stage 0 – The cancer has been diagnosed early. It started in the breast ducts or milk glands and has stayed there.
  • Stage I – Starting at this level, breast cancer is called invasive, meaning it has broken free to attack healthy tissue.
  • Stage 1A – means the cancer has spread into the fatty breast tissue. The tumor itself is no larger than a shelled peanut, or there may be no tumor
  • Stage IB – means some cancer cells, but just tiny amounts, have been found in a few lymph nodes.
  • Stage II – The cancer has grown, spread, or both.
  • stage IIB – breast tumor is bigger, it may be the size of a walnut or as big as a lime. It may or may not be in any lymph nodes.
  • Stage III – The cancer has not spread to bones or organs, but it’s considered advanced, and it’s harder to fight.
  • Stage IIIA – The cancer has been found in up to nine of the lymph nodes that form a chain from your underarm to your collarbone. Or it has spread to or enlarged the lymph nodes deep in your breast. In some cases there is a large tumor in the breast.
  • Stage IIIB – The tumor has grown into the chest wall or skin around your breast, even if it hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes.
  • Stage IIIC – The cancer has been found in 10 or more lymph nodes, or has spread above or below your collarbone and if fewer lymph nodes outside the breast are affected but those inside it are enlarged or cancerous.
  • Stage IV – Breast cancer cells have spread far away from the breast and lymph nodes right around it. The most common sites are the bones, lungs, liver, and brain. This stage is described as “metastatic,” and it has spread beyond the region of the body where it was first found.

Group of Cancers…

  • Group T – “T” stands for tumor, or the lump of cancer found in the breast itself.
  • Group N – “N” stands for nodes, as in lymph nodes. These small filters are found throughout the body, and they’re especially dense in and around the breast. They’re meant to catch cancer cells before they travel to other parts of the body.
  • Group M – “M” stands for metastasis. The cancer has spread beyond the breast and lymph nodes.

By looking at stages and groups of cancer you can consult your doctor and by the advise of cancer doctors you can take the prescribed medicines.

Treatments done for Breast Cancer and side effects

0

Your cancer doctors will discuss your treatment options with you. It’s important that you think carefully about each of your choices. Weigh the benefits of each treatment option against the possible risks and side effects.

Local treatments

Most women with breast cancer will have some type of surgery to remove the tumor. Depending on the type of breast cancer and how advanced it is, you might need other types of treatment as well, either before or after surgery, or sometimes both.

  1. Surgery for Breast Cancer…
  • Remove as much of the cancer as possible (breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy)
  • Find out whether the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm (sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node dissection)
  • Restore the breast’s shape after the cancer is removed (breast reconstruction)
  • Relieve symptoms of advanced cancer.

2. Radiation for Breast Cancer…

  • External beam radiation: This type of radiation comes from a machine outside the body.
  • Internal radiation (brachytherapy): For this treatment, a radioactive source is put inside the body for a short time.

Systemic treatments

Drugs used to treat breast cancer are considered systemic therapies because they can reach cancer cells almost anywhere in the body. They can be given by mouth or put directly into the bloodstream. Depending on the type of breast cancer, different types of drug treatment might be used, including:

  1. Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer…
  • After surgery (adjuvant chemotherapy)
  • Before surgery (neoadjuvant chemotherapy)

side effects of chemotherapy for breast cancer

  • Hair loss
  • Nail changes
  • Mouth sores
  • Loss of appetite or weight changes
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • For advanced breast cancer
  • Hormone Therapy for Breast Cancer

2. Targeted therapy for Breast Cancer

  • Trastuzumab (Herceptin)
  • Pertuzumab (Perjeta)
  • Ado-trastuzumab emtansine (Kadcyla, also known as TDM-1)
  • Lapatinib (Tykerb)
  • Neratinib (Nerlynx)

Common treatments

Treatment plans are based on the type of breast cancer, its stage, and any special situations. Your treatment plan will depend on other factors as well, including your overall health and personal preferences.

  1. Treatment of Breast Cancer by Stage
  2. Treating Breast Cancer During Pregnancy
  • The size of the tumor
  • Where the tumor is located
  • If the cancer has spread and if so, how far
  • How far along you are in the pregnancy
  • Your overall health
  • Your personal preferences

Breast Cancer Symptoms and its Side Effects

0

The most common symptom of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A painless, hard mass that has irregular edges is more likely to be cancer, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded. They can even be painful.

  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt).
  • Skin irritation or dimpling (sometimes looking like an orange peel).
  • Breast or nipple pain.
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward).
  • Redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin.
  • Nipple discharge (other than breast milk).

Breast Cancer side effects…

Chemotherapy and radiation destroy breast cancer cells. But these treatments can also affect healthy cells. They might cause:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Mouth sores
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Early menopause

Mesothelioma causes and Risk Factors

0

 Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that commonly affects the lungs and chest. It is most likely to result from exposure to asbestos, which may have been up to 30 years before symptoms appear. There is no cure and treatment for relieving symptoms.

Top 5 Reasons for  Mesothelioma..

  • Asbestos exposure is the main cause of mesothelioma.
  • Asbestos in areas of mining or road construction.
  • Asbestos-containing rock also causes mesothelioma.
  • Exposure to asbestos-containing soil, which is used to whitewash, plaster and roof houses.
  • Exposure to talc, who live near talc mines, work in talc mines, or work in talc mills.
  • Family members and others living with asbestos workers have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma.
  • Asbestos in buildings.
  • Genetic disposition.
  • Erionite is a zeolite mineral with similar properties of asbestos is known to cause mesothelioma.

Does Smoking causes Mesothelioma?

According to a studies over the last two decades, while cigarette smoking does not lead to mesothelioma, cigarette smokers who are exposed to asbestos about 50 to 84 times are likely to develop asbestos-related lung cancer.

Cancer is a disease, which cannot be curable and medicine for the curable of cancer is also expensive, so take some precautionary measures to avoid cancer.

  • Never perform asbestos work, if you are not trained and certified.
  • If you lack the proper training in asbestos removal, leave this type of work to professionals.

How to Protect from asbestos exposure at Home?

  • Attic insulation.
  • Roof shingles and tar.
  • Drywall and drywall glue.
  • Floor tiles.
  • Popcorn ceilings.
  • Joint compounds.
  • Wrapping on pipes and electrical wires.
  • Damaged or friable asbestos products should be removed from the house immediately.
