Breast cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in women. While the incidence of breast cancer is rising year by year, the age of getting this disease also shows younger trend. According to related statistics, breast cancer accounts for 7%-10% of all cancers. Post-menopausal women at the age of 40 to 60 are especially easy to get this disease.
Breast cancer is the no.1 killer of women. One in three women in the world would develop breast cancer.
Experts of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou pointed out that most patients have diagnosed with breast cancer at middle or advanced stage. The main reason is that most women have ignored the early symptoms of breast cancer.Read more
When breast cancer is detected early, the survival rate is 98%. Therefore, early detection of breast cancer is very important. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams. A commonly used method for breast examination is mammogram.Read more
Anything that increases your risk of getting a disease is called a risk factor. But having a risk factor, or even several, does not mean that you will get the disease. Study the high risk factors of breast cancer will help you find the healthiest lifestyle.Read more
Breast cancer patients usually choose surgery to remove tumors. However, this practice will cause big surgical trauma which is susceptible to infection, yet it can not kill the cancer cells completely. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy may kill tumor effectively. However, there are so many side effects, and they kill not only cancer cells, but normal cells as well, which create a favorable environment for cancer regrowth.
Breast cancer has various kinds of treatments. Usually, doctors will advice you to receive an integrative treatment. In Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, besides traditional treatments there are also minimally invasive therapies such as interventional therapy, cryotherapy, particle knife and biological immunotherapy. Before making the treatment plan, doctors will evaluate your type, stage, your age and physical condition, and then they will work out the best treatment plan for you.
In Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, cryotherapy, also named Ar-He knife, is applied to treat middle or advanced breast cancer. Cryotherapy can leads breast cancer cells to coagulation necrosis and then blasting. While it destroys tumor vessels and cancer cells, it won’t cause damage to surrounding normal tissues.
1.Higher success rate and less complications;
2.No operation, less bleeding and smaller trauma;
3.A physical therapy with less toxicity and side effects;
4.Almost all solid tumors can be treated by cryotherapy;
5.It can be used alone or work with radiotherapy or chemotherapy or surgery;
6.Remarkable curative effect, easy operation and low cost;
7.Prevent recurrence. After cryothery, even though there is cancer cells remained, they will be frozen and will not regrow quickly.
In interventional therapy, anti-cancer drugs are injected directly to primary lesions or other metastatic tissues. At the same time, embolotherapy is done to tumors and their feeding arteries to block blood supply, so as to starve the tumors to death. Embolic agents can take the anti-cancer medicines to the tumors directly, therefore, the effect will be much higher and will not cause harm to nearby normal organs or tissues.
1.Local anaesthesia & small trauma;
2.Strong repeatability & small side effect;
3.Strongly targeted & real-time efficacy evaluation;
4.Speedy recovery & significant effect;
In Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, both ACTL™ cell targeted therapy and biological immunotherapy are feasible biotherapies for breast cancer patients. Both two therapies use cells collected from the patients themselves. By separating and culturing those cells in a special laboratory, those like DC-CIK and CTL cells are obtained and then rejected into the patients. Biological immunotherapy can kill cancer cells effectively. It clears minimal residual lesions in any part of the body, which effectively prevents neoplasm recurrence and metastasis.
1.Broad - spectrum cytotoxicity;
2.Regulate immunity, kill and wound tumor cells;
3.Slight side effect and mild rejection reaction.
The 12 minimally invasive therapies, to which Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou has been devoted, have become leading treatments in cancer treatments. The multi-disciplinary integrated treatment of interventional therapy, radioactive particle implantation, cryotherapy, gene-target therapy, biological immunotherapy, radiofrequency and combination of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine lights up the hope for cancer patients.Read More
