What is Invasive breast cancer and Its Ayurvedic Treatment ?
Invasive breast cancer is a type of breast cancer that occurs when abnormal cells within the breast tissue start growing uncontrollably, invading surrounding healthy tissues, and spreading to other parts of the body. It is the most common type of breast cancer, accounting for approximately 80% of all breast cancer diagnoses.
Invasive breast cancer develops from the ducts or lobules of the breast, which are the two main parts of the breast responsible for producing milk. The cancer cells can invade the surrounding tissues, such as the fatty tissue and connective tissue within the breast, or spread to other organs, such as the lungs, bones, or brain, through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.
There are different subtypes of invasive breast cancer, each with unique characteristics that influence the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. The most common subtypes are invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) and invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC). IDC develops from the cells that line the milk ducts, while ILC originates from the cells that form the milk-producing glands.
The signs and symptoms of invasive breast cancer may vary from person to person, but some of the most common ones include a lump or mass in the breast, changes in the size, shape, or appearance of the breast, nipple discharge or inversion, and skin changes such as redness, swelling, or dimpling.
Early detection is crucial for successful treatment and improved outcomes. Women should perform regular self-exams and undergo clinical breast exams and mammograms as recommended by their healthcare provider.
