Benign breast disorder treatments

Benign breast disorders are common breast conditions that most women experience at least once in their lifetimes.

Such disorders may bring anxiety and may consider it as a warning sign of breast cancer too. Usually, these changes are not life-threatening or cancerous but in rare cases, some can indicate a risk of breast cancer. Thus it is necessary to consult a doctor who can discern these breast differences. Share your breast-related concerns with Dr. Shabnam Bashir, one of the leading oncologists in India, who has effectively cured thousands of patients with her unmatched services.


Surgical removal of fibroadenomas

Fibroadenomas are small masses which are commonly seen in young women between the ages of 15 and 35.

Fibroadenomas are non-cancerous and can be managed conservatively in young women. These lumps are removed due to pain or discomfort. Lumpectomy or excisional biopsy is a common surgical method used to remove fibroadenomas. In this procedure, the surgeon removes only the affected breast tissues and it is sent to a laboratory to examine the presence of cancer cells.

Wide Local Excision of Phyllode tumour

Phyllode tumours are rare kinds of tumours found in the breast. Most phyllode tumours grow quickly and they can be benign or malignant. A wide local excision method is used as an effective method for removing phyllode tumours. With wide local excision, phyllode tumours along with the healthy tissues surrounding it are removed. This is done to prevent further formation of new tumours in the breasts.

Cosmetic removal of both sides large fibroadenomas

The usual procedure of removing fibroadenomas leaves a scar at the treated area. Nowadays, minimally invasive procedures have emerged to remove breast lesions safely and efficiently. The minimally invasive procedures include endoscopic lumpectomy, laser or cryotherapy. These procedures remove fibroadenomas by preserving the breast tissues to the possible extent, with the least visibility of scars.

Drainage of pus with minimal access methods

Some women tend to develop pus in the breast. This is a benign breast condition called breast abscess and it mainly affects lactating mothers. The pus is formed due to infection and a breast abscess needs to be drained out with multiple needle aspiration or small incision with or without the help of an ultrasound. A less invasive method of drainage of pus is by needle aspiration with the guidance of ultrasound. This method is effective and leaves no scars.
