Asymptomatic breast cancer: symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention

Breast Cancer It is one of the most common types of cancer faced by women in the world. There are two types of breast cancer – symptomatic and asymptomatic. It becomes more difficult for breast cancer patients if the cancer is asymptomatic. In such a situation, people are not able to diagnose it at the right time, the time taken for treatment is reduced and the severity of the disease increases. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr BS Ankit Nehra, Consultant Medical Oncology, HCG Cancer Center Jaipur said, “Breast cancer can also be asymptomatic in that it does not show any signs or symptoms making it difficult to identify the individual. Therefore, it is very important for women routine cancer screening After a certain age, to ensure early diagnosis, better survival rates and lower chances of intensive treatment.”
