Treatment After Removal Of A Malignant Tumor In The Breast?
At noon, my mother had a malignant breast tumor on the left, and on January 2, 2020, she had surgery and had her breast removed. Does this type of disease have to undergo chemotherapy? And also whether malignant tumors, including cancer? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Malignant tumors are often another name for cancer. It is said to be malignant, because this condition is characterized by tissue growth that is too fast and abnormal, is destructive, and can move to other parts of the body, such as if initially in the breast, can move to the brain, spine, digestive tract, and damage these parts.
Regarding your question, chemotherapy is indeed one of the treatments for cancer. But you need to know, the method of handling cancer will depend on the severity and spread. If the cancer is still in its early stages and is still clustering, like for example in your mother's case the cancer is still focused on the breast, it may not need chemotherapy, but rather surgery. But if it is already an advanced stage, the cancer has spread everywhere, if you want to have surgery, it is not possible to operate all of it. And the surgical method also cannot take all the small, invisible cancer cells. So chemotherapy was chosen, which could reach parts not covered by surgery.
In essence, handling will depend on the results of the examination. And because we did not have your mother checked, we cannot say clearly what treatment she should undergo. We suggest consulting an oncologist / cancer doctor, and if you do not agree with the proposed treatment, you may seek a second opinion from another oncologist. What is clear, that treatment must be given, and should not rely on plants or herbal ingredients because the properties have not been clinically tested. So, hopefully answering your question.
