As many as 25% cancers in women are breast cancer: Fortis doctor

Date : March 11, 2016

As many as 25% cancers in women are breast cancer. Sharing this fact and more, Dr Naval Bansal, MS, MCh, Endocrine & Breast Surgeon at Fortis Hospital Mohali (Punjab), discussed the importance of early detection for breast cancer, saying it was the leading cancer among urban women in the Region. Dr Bansal also talked about the lesser-known, but more dangerous, endocrine tumours (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreas), saying these need special attention as this very small tumour can lead to devastation.

For both breast and endocrine cancers, surgery is the main treatment, so an expert handling these tumours is important, the Oncology Surgeon said. “Thyroid cancer is on the rise in India and it needs early detection and good surgical care because inappropriate treatment can lead to loss of voice, permanent calcium deficiency and disease recurrence. Nowadays, scar-less thyroid surgery can be performed by laparoscope if the tumour is detected at early stage,” Dr Naval said.
