Breast mass of 2 cm

Chief Complaint A 69 y/o female complaint of the right breast. History She had history of uncomplicated cesarian sections twice. No other past medical history. Examination Physical examination shows a mass of 2 cm. No palpable axillary lymph nodes. Investigations Needle biopsy shows an infiltrating ductal breast carcinoma. Treatment Breast-conserving surgery was done, diagnosed as grade 3, 1.5 × 1.2 cm invasive ductal carcinoma. Should we go for breast irradiation?

Breast conservation surgery have the advantage but invariably in this case she definitely requires radiotherapy because many a times breast cancer can be multicentric in origin and so radiotherapy to the remaining breast is mandatory Breast-conserving surgery allows a woman to keep most of her breast, but makes it likely she will also need radiation. After BCS, most women will have radiation therapy. Some women might also get other treatments, such as hormone therapy or chemotherapy. Choosing BCS plus radiation over mastectomy does not affect a woman’s chances of long-term survival.

Ductal adenocarcinoma breast is malignant Go for excisional biopsy Followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy Sos radical mastectomy

Breast malignancy is confirmed. Medical mastectomy / Radiotherapy / Chemotherapy. Take the recession at an earliest with consultation of Oncosurgion to avoid secondary ..

An infiltrating duct carcinoma 2 cm in size Although BCS has been done - but patient needs post surgery radiotherapy and chemotherapy and / or hormonal therapy depending upon ER , PR and HER - 2 protein status of the excised tumour mass

By definition it is early breast cancer Adv - 1) Breast conservative surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy OR 2) Modified radical mastectomy No role of upfront radiotherapy

BREAST..MASS.. HPE..STUDY.. MALIGNANCY.. NEED'S.. ONCOLOGISTS OPINION FOR FURTHER MANAGEMENT..

YES... BREAST. RADIATION. THERAPY IS. OFTEN. ...RECOMMENDED... AFTER. LUMPECTOMIES AND MASTECTOMIES...

If the lumpectomy resected margins are free of malignant cells What is the report of IHS panel. Breast irradiation is recommended for any residual lesion or if the surgical margins are not free of tumour Chaemo is recommended Prophylactic irradiation to ipsilatral axillae/ Axillary clearance

I think, consult with a Oncology and Surgery department Or a Oncologist for the better treatment and management.

Thank you Sir@Dr. Vipin Bihari Jain .
