Breast Cancer Management

Breast cancer management takes different approaches that depend on the physical and biological characteristics of the disease, age, overall health and personal preferences of the patient. There are 2 types of treatment classified into local therapy (surgery and radiotherapy) and systemic treatment (chemo-, endocrine, and targeted therapies). The mainstay of breast cancer management is surgery for the local and regional tumor, followed by a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, endocrine therapy, and targeted therapy. Radiation treatment includes utilizing high-vitality X-rays or Gamma rays that target a tumor or post-surgery tumor site. Cryoablation trial treatments accessible for women with small or early-stage breast cancer. The rejuvenation of the breast after breast cancer surgery is included in holistic approaches to cancer management to address identity and expressive aspects of the disease whereas reconstruction can take place at the same time as cancer-removing surgery, takes to an inordinate length of time later so some women decide not to have reconstruction and they opt for a prosthesis instead. Epidemiologic risk factors vary by the hormone receptor expression of the breast cancer divided into preventable and non-preventable. Their study belongs in the field of epidemiology.
