Breast cancer symptoms vary widely — from lumps to swelling to skin changes — and many breast cancers have no obvious symptoms at all.
Symptoms that are similar to those of breast cancer may be the result of non-cancerous conditions like infection or a cyst.
Dr. Caroline OSMAN, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, will instruct patients during their check ups how to do do Breast self-exam which should be part of your monthly health care routine, and to check them up whether they experience changes. If you’re over 40 or at a high risk for the disease, you should also have an annual mammogram. The earlier breast cancer is found and diagnosed, the better your chances of beating .
The tests conducted by Dr. Caroline OSMAN, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, and used for screening, diagnosis, and monitoring, include mammograms, ultrasound, MRI, CAT scans, PET scans, and more.
The different types of breast cancer, including ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC), inflammatory breast cancer, male breast cancer, recurrent breast cancer, metastatic breast cancer, and more.
The characteristics of the cancer — featured on the pathology report — that might affect your treatment plan, including size, stage, lymph node status, hormone receptor status, and more.
Many women with breast cancer are candidates for breast-conserving surgery, also called lumpectomy, partial mastectomy or quadrantectomy.
In this type of operation, Dr. Caroline OSMAN, Obstetrician and Gynecologist, selectively removes the tumor and leaves the remaining breast intact.
In some instances, there must be some reshaping of the breast to help prevent contour deformities that may develop in the future, particularly after radiation.
This reshaping, done at the same time as the removal of the tumor, is called Oncoplastic Surgery.
Oncoplastic Surgery not only removes the cancer, it also prevents undue scarring and deformation of the breast, helping to maintain an aesthetically pleasing breast after all of the treatment for cancer is complete.
