Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through the attached reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Yes, the biopsy report has confirmed the diagnosis of breast cancer. Now, the next step will be to stage this disease. For that purpose, she will be adviced to do a CT scan of chest, abdomen, and pelvis plus possibly an isotope bone scan and mammogram of bilateral breasts. Once the staging work is completed, she will be planned for an oncological treatment.
Various treatment options are available for breast cancer - chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery, hormonal and target therapy. It will be planned after completion of staging workup and once the pathological and molecular details of the tumor are available.
The low-risk breast cancer or good prognostic breast cancer depends upon the below-mentioned factors.
