Breast cancer treatment

Minimally invasive therapy is an advanced comprehensive therapy, including cryotherapy, interventional therapy, microwave ablation, nano-knife, photodynamic therapy, photon knife, which is applicable to breast cancer patients at middle or advanced stage. Minimally invasive therapy only brings 1-2 mm trauma and patients do not need to undergo open surgery. It accurately targets the tumor and cause little side effects to the surrounding healthy tissue so as to effectively shrink the tumor, improve the life quality and prolong the lifespan.

Standard treatment includes surgery, green chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy and Chinese medicine therapy, which is applicable to the breast cancer patient at early stage. At early stage, cancer cells have not spread to other part of the body and taking the surgery can help remove the tumor to eliminate the cancer cells. However, some patients who are at an old age or those who are weak may not tolerate surgery.

Treatment effect and 5-year survival rate of breast cancer

The 5-year survival rate and treatment effect of breast cancer are closely related with what treatment patients took, development of cancer and physical condition of patient.
