Shortness Of Breath In Breast Cancer Sufferers?
Mat afternoon, I want to ask, my mother is suffering from breast cancer. But my mother has very tiring breathlessness. After the thorax photo said there was fluid in the lungs. After that, punksi was done. I was already in the chemotherapy room but the chemo process was not continued because my mother was experiencing difficulty again .
Breast cancer is a condition of the onset of malignancy (cancer cells) in the breast tissue. Cancer is a body cell that grows uncontrollably and can invade (invade) the surrounding tissue. The ability of cancer cells to invade the surrounding tissue or metastasize is what can cause complaints in the tissue around the cancer.
Apart from cancer metastases, the onset of shortness of breath in your mother can also be caused by the following conditions:
Chemotherapy side effects
Other medical conditions such as heart problems, lung infections, etc.
In this regard, you should consult directly with the doctor who treats your mother to get appropriate information about the condition causing your mother's complaint. Ask your doctor about anything that is unclear and what steps can be taken to deal with your mother's complaint.
