History of early stage breast cancer have septated ovarian cyst?

History of early stage breast cancer have septated ovarian cyst?

Need more details: I highly recommend you consult your oncology team and get evaluated by a gynecology oncologist. Since you are <50, it makes me concerned about a brca mutations (if you have not been tested, then get tested!). Ovarian cancer and breast cancer can be related, especially if brca is positive. If you have a estrogen positive tumor, then stopping the ovaries from making hormone may be beneficial.

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

What could replace tamoxiphen in second 5 years after breast cancer? Tamoxiphen caused me ovarian cyst and uterus thickening. Thanks

What could replace tamoxiphen in second 5 years after breast cancer? Tamoxiphen caused me ovarian cyst and uterus thickening. Thanks

Letrozole: Tamoxifen for 5 years followed by Letrozole would be an option. However, technically you are still premenopausal so not an option. Another treatment which is controversial is to have your ovaries removes. There is data on 10 years of tamoxifen now but you may not want to do this. The other option would be observation. Hope this helps.

Muliple issues: I would suggest that you seek a comprehensive medical evalaution: some GI symptoms may be related; however breast cance, ovarian cysts, kidney diease are all separate issues. Get yourself in the hands of an expert or experts-ASAP.

Could you get ovarian cancer if you don't have family history and you never had breast cancer early.?

Hereditary cancers: Only 10-15% of ovarian cancers are hereditary (passed through a family). So, most cases of ovarian cancer happen in women with no family history or personal history.

Is it reasonable to have a mastectomy for early-stage breast cancer and not have chemo or radiation?

Is it reasonable to have a mastectomy for early-stage breast cancer and not have chemo or radiation?

It Depends: A mastectomy does not guarantee you won't need chemo or radiation. The tumor's "personality" determines that. After a mastectomy, you might need chemo if the tumor is aggressive. Chemo treats your whole body to kill cancer that may have traveled. You might need radiation if you have positive lymph nodes, or if cancer was near the incision site. Ask your oncologist. It's complicated!

What does "early-stage" breast cancer mean?

What does "early-stage" breast cancer mean?

See full answer: Generally early stage refers to stage 0, i, or ii. Stage depends on the size of invasive cancer and whether or not there has been spread to underarm lymph nodes. Stage 0 is noninvasive, dcis. Stage I is any invasive cancer < 2cm and no spread to lymph nodes. Stage ii is 2-5cm cancer and/or spread to nodes. Stage iii is a larger cancer and spread to more nodes; stage IV is spread to other organs.

How can early-stage breast cancer be treated?

How can early-stage breast cancer be treated?

Complex: Always surgery: mastectomy and lumpectomy. In either case, a sentinel node biopsy in the armpit (axilla) will be done and possibly a full axillary node dissection. Usually (if > 1cm and/or estrogen receptor negative) chemotherapy and/or hormonal blockade. Often radiotherapy: if no mastectomy or if mastectomy and + lymph nodes.

How is early-stage breast cancer typically treated?

How is early-stage breast cancer typically treated?

Surgery first: Surgery comes first to remove the tumor and some lymph nodes in the armpit. Depending on the sub-type of breast cancer, chemotherapy (if necessary) comes next. Radiation comes next if breast-sparing surgery was done. Finally, if the tumor has the estrogen receptor, anti-estrogen pills are given for five years.

What is "early-stage" breast cancer?

What is "early-stage" breast cancer?

Good prognosis: "early stage" means it was detected early. That generally means a relatively small (amenable to lumpectomy/breast conservation) with no or minimal lymph node involvement. The earlier a cancer is detected the more options for treatment and the better the prognosis.

Can you tell me if a person had early stage breast cancer 22 years ago and have been fine since how often do they need to have?

Can you tell me if a person had early stage breast cancer 22 years ago and have been fine since how often do they need to have?

Likely routine f/u: Hello- after 22 years of being cancer free routine imaging and follow-up is likely to be sufficient. This means monthly self-breast exam following a menstrual cycle, an annual mammogram, and an annual breast exam by an md. If a gene that caused the breast cancer was identified then more rigorous screening may be indicated. This person should discuss it with their md. Thank you.

What are the symptoms of early stage Her2 positive breast cancer?

What are the symptoms of early stage Her2 positive breast cancer?

Lump: Her2 cancers may tend to grow and spread faster than Her2 negative cancers. There are also specific medicines that can be used with Her2 positive cancers. However, there are really no symptoms specific for a Her2 cancer. Like all early stage cancers, there may be no symptoms (and the cancer is detected on mammogram or ultrasound), or there may be a palpable mass.

In early stage her-2 breast cancer, which is the best option:- is it taking drugs or a total removal of the breast?

In early stage her-2 breast cancer, which is the best option:- is it taking drugs or a total removal of the breast?

2 Different Issues: Mastectomy or Lump-x + Radiation RX are LOCAL treatments of breast cancer, with EQUAL survival rates. One or the other is necessary for all breast CA pt's. CHEMOTHERAPY ("drugs") are SYSTEMIC (whole body) RX's for certain breast cancers. Her2Neu (+) cancers are particularly sensitive to Herceptin (trastuzumab). Please meet with your oncologist to understand the different options you have. Good luck.

Dr I came to know that breast cancer causes misscarriage, is it true? Breast cancer causes early stage miscarriages?!

Dr I came to know that breast cancer causes misscarriage, is it true? Breast cancer causes early stage miscarriages?!

NO: But any treatment for breast cancer other than surgery could cause fetal abnormalities use ultrasound instead of mammogram to safely image the breast and guide biopsy if needed.

8 years ago I had breast cancer and recovered from cancer, but now bone and the doctor told me that at a very early stage and gave me the pills hormo?

8 years ago I had breast cancer and recovered from cancer, but now bone and the doctor told me that at a very early stage and gave me the pills hormo?

If your cancer: Now is in your bones after 8 years, the treatment with anti-hormones can be quite successful in relieving symptoms, but does not cure the disease. Some biopsy the bone to prove that it is the same cancer, and re-test er/pr and her-2-neu status. Relapse after 8 years is no common, but not rare. Best wishes and good luck.

Mother had breast cancer in stage 3 8 years agoand now has a secondary bone cancer, said dr. It at an early stage and take the risk and give them only?

Mother had breast cancer in stage 3 8 years agoand now has a secondary bone cancer, said dr. It at an early stage and take the risk and give them only?

Sounds like mom: Has findings in bones compatible with recurrent breast cancer 8 years later. I would not call this an ealy stage. With long interval, best to biopsy, check er/pr/her-2-neu on the biopsy to guide therapy. If painful or weight bearing, single fraction XRT or cryotherapy.

Survival for 42yr. Woman, breast cancer both breasts, no smoking, drinking. 2 children. Pat. Grandmother and aunt died from it. Early stage. Nipple invert. Slowly from breast feeding over 9yrs. Saw dr.

Breast Cancer.: Breast cancer, even in both breasts, can be cured. It is difficult to give survival information without knowing stage and more details. But, this can be answered by your oncologist.

I'm 30 years old, have never had children. My mam had breast cancer when she was 44 I've got 27cm septated cyst in ovary & have typical ov/ca symptoms?

I'm 30 years old, have never had children. My mam had breast cancer when she was 44 I've got 27cm septated cyst in ovary & have typical ov/ca symptoms?

You need surgery...: Your family history, symptoms and size of ovarian cyst are worrisome. You need surgery to remove it. If your Ob/Gyn is worried about cancer, he/she may recommend that your surgery be done by a Gyn Oncologist (a specialist in female cancers) but this isn't always necessary. Ob/Gyns are trained to make this decision. Best wishes.
