Early Detection of Breast Cancer | Dr. P K Das
Although breast cancer generally shows no symptoms in the early stages, timely detection can turn a story of breast cancer into a survivor’s tale.
When breast cancer is caught early, it has a lower chance of spreading. Dr P K Das, senior consultant medical oncologist at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, says that it is limited to breast tissue. When breast cancer develops, the lymph nodes beneath the armpit are the first to be affected before it spreads elsewhere in the body, according to the specialist. The doctor uses computer imagery to demonstrate how a healthy breast appears, as well as how cancer is identified and treated.
