Breast Cancer
Invasive breast cancer is a malignancy in which cancer cells have penetrated the basement membrane of the mammary ducts or lobular alveoli and invaded the stroma. The vast majority of invasive breast cancers are adenocarcinomas, which originate from the epithelial cells of the mammary parenchyma, especially the terminal ductal lobular units. Breast cancer accounts for 17.6% of cancer cases in the Philippines, affecting nearly 25,000 people across the archipelago in 2018. It’s estimated that the total number of breast cancer cases will nearly double by 2040. According to the Asian Breast Center, one in four Filipino women in the country have breast cancer. "Asia has one of the lowest rates of breast cancer, but the Philippines has one of the highest rates in the world," said Norman San Agustin, MD, CEO of the Asian Breast Center.
Symptoms of Breast Cancer
Diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, are you suffering from these situations?
  • Double blow to the body and mind

    Diagnosed with invasive breast cancer is not only physical pain but also a struggle of the mind. Fear, helplessness, anxiety, these negative emotions are like shadows, always accompanying you.

  • Side effects and discomfort during treatment

    Although chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and other treatments are effective, their side effects cannot be ignored. Nausea, vomiting, hair loss, fatigue, and other problems make you feel tortured during treatment.

  • Disease progression and complications

    Invasive breast cancer may metastasize to lymph nodes or other organs, such as bones, lungs, liver, etc., causing more pain and complications.

Classification and staging of invasive breast cancer
As a type of breast cancer, the treatment of invasive breast cancer needs to be individualized according to different stages. We will introduce you in detail to this minimally invasive treatment technology for invasive breast cancer of different stages, as well as its advantages over traditional treatment.
Invasive breast cancer can be divided into the following types according to pathological differences:
Ordinary invasive breast cancer: including solid carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, etc. Solid carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer, accounting for about 80%, but other factors are still needed to determine the prognosis;
Special types of invasive breast cancer: include papillary carcinoma, and medullary carcinoma (with a large number of lymphocyte infiltration, etc.).
Invasive breast cancer is usually divided into the following stages according to the degree of cancer cells invasion and the latest version of the international TNM standard staging:
Stage I From mild to severe, they’re stage IA and stage IB. The invasive breast lesions are small, there’s no metastasis or micro-metastasis to the axillary lymph nodes, and the treatment effect is good.
Stage II From mild to severe, they are stage IIA and stage IIB. The invasive breast lesions are small, there’s little metastasis to the axillary lymph nodes or the invasive lesions are slightly larger, there’s no metastasis to the axillary lymph nodes, and the treatment effect is slightly worse than stage I.
Stage III From mild to severe, they’re stage IIIA, stage IIIB, and stage IIIC. Generally, the invasive breast lesions are large, and even locally invade the breast, and there are many axillary lymph node metastases. The tumor develops to a more serious stage, and the treatment effect is worse than stage I and stage II.
Stage Ⅳ Stage IV means that there’s organ metastasis outside the breast and axillary lymph nodes. It’s advanced breast cancer, the condition is more serious than stage I-III, it’s no longer curable, the treatment effect is relatively poor, and most of them can only be maintained for a long time.
How long can a patient with breast cancer live?
Breast cancer
Five-year survival rate
  • about 90%

    Early stage (stage I)
  • about 85% to 70%

    Mid-stage (stage IIA-IIB)
  • about 52% to 48%

    Mid-stage (stage IIIA-IIIB)
  • about 18%

    Late stage (stage IV)
Interventional Therapy X Invasive Breast Cancer
Minimally invasive treatment guided by medical imaging equipment only requires an incision of 1-2 mm, puncture under the guidance of medical imaging equipment, and special catheters, guidewires, and other precision instruments are directly introduced into the human body to diagnose the lesion, or extract its tissue and choose to carry out local treatment at the same time or electively.
  • 1.Less trauma and faster recovery: Compared with traditional surgery, interventional therapy has less trauma, less pain, and shorter recovery time, allowing patients to return to normal life faster.
  • 2. High accuracy and remarkable effect: Under the guidance of imaging equipment, interventional therapy can accurately reach the lesion area, carry out precise treatment, and improve the treatment effect.
  • 3. Less side effects and high safety: Since the drug acts directly on tumor tissue, the toxic side effects of drugs on normal tissue during systemic chemotherapy are avoided.
  • 4. Fewer side effects and high safety: For patients with early-stage breast cancer, interventional therapy can be used as an auxiliary treatment before surgery to improve the effect of surgery; for patients with advanced breast cancer, recurrent breast cancer, or metastatic breast cancer, interventional therapy can be used as an effective treatment method which can control the disease and prolong survival.
  • 5. Improve the quality of life: Interventional therapy can significantly improve a patient’s life quality by reducing pain, repairing ulcers, reducing bleeding and oozing fluid, and shrinking swollen lymph nodes.
Radiofrequency Ablation X Invasive Breast Cancer
Minimally invasive treatment guided by medical imaging equipment, the multipolar needle ablation electrode is accurately inserted into the tumor site, and the radiofrequency ablation instrument conducts radiofrequency pulse energy into the tumor tissue through the multipolar needle under the control of an electronic computer, causing the tumor tissue to Generate local high temperature (80 ℃ -100 ℃), thereby achieving the purpose of coagulation and necrosis of tumor tissue and adjacent tissues that may be spread.
  • 1. Minimally invasive and safe, with few complications: small trauma, less bleeding, fast recovery, and reduced risks of bleeding, infection, etc., which can greatly reduce the patient's physical burden and significantly improve the life quality after treatment.
  • 2. Precise positioning: Precisely locate the tumor tissue, and use the heat generated by high-frequency electromagnetic waves to cause coagulative necrosis of tumor cells, thereby achieving effective control of local tumors, helping to improve the success rate of treatment while reducing damage to normal tissues.
  • 3. Rapid recovery and remarkable treatment effect: It acts directly on tumor tissue to achieve precise treatment and significantly improve the treatment effect. For some patients with early-stage tumors, complete ablation can even be achieved, resulting in a cure, which can ensure the effective killing of tumor cells and reduce the possibility of recurrence.
  • 4. Strong reproducibility: patients can receive multiple treatments to improve the success rate of treatment. This reproducibility provides patients with more treatment opportunities and increases the likelihood of cure.
Interventional Therapy, Radiofrequency Ablation VS Traditional Treatment
St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou mainly uses the new integrated anti-cancer model of "integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine, minimally invasive targeting" to treat cancer, such as interventional therapy, seed implantation therapy, combined knife, microwave ablation, nanoknife, cryotherapy, etc., combined with each cancer patient's specific condition and personal needs, to develop a personalized integrated minimally invasive treatment plan.
Interventional Therapy and Radiofrequency Ablation 1. No need for excision and few complications: Minimally invasive treatment can greatly preserve the intestine and enter the body through a small incision, which greatly reduces complications such as postoperative infection.
2. Small trauma, fewer side effects, fewer complications, and fast recovery: Minimally invasive treatment is a minimally invasive non-open surgery, which has less postoperative pain and quick recovery, which can greatly improve the life quality of patients.
3. High safety: less damage to the surrounding normal tissues, fewer adverse reactions, less risky, more suitable for the elderly, organ dysfunction.
4. Short treatment time: The minimally invasive treatment cycle is about one week, the recovery cycle is short, and the effect is fast, helping patients return to normal life faster.
5. Patients do not need to wait in line, and are immediately treated after admission.
6. One-on-one individual consultation to ensure the privacy and security of patients to a great extent.
  • Surgical Resection: 1. Changes in body shape: Mastectomy will result in partial or complete removal of the breast, which will change the shape of the breast and may have a certain psychological impact on women's body image and self-confidence.
    2. Postoperative complications: There may be a variety of complications after breast cancer resection, such as bleeding, effusion, flap necrosis, upper limb edema, etc., which will increase the patient's pain and recovery time.
    3. Long recovery period: Due to the impact of surgical trauma and complications, patients may need a period of recovery, which will temporarily affect the patient's daily life and work.
    4. Risk of recurrence or metastasis: Although surgical resection can remove most cancer cells, there’s still a risk of recurrence. Especially if the cancer cells have spread to the lymph nodes or other parts, the effect of the surgery may be limited.
  • Radiotherapy: 1. Large side effects: Radiotherapy may cause local skin damage to the breast, accompanied by side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and oral ulcers, which greatly affect the patient's life quality.
    2. Long treatment cycle: It usually takes several weeks or even months, affecting the patient's life and work.
    3. Large trauma: It’s easy to damage lung tissue and cause radiation pneumonia, which may even threaten the patient's life safety in severe cases.
  • Chemotherapy: 1. Serious side effects: Often accompanied by obvious side effects such as hair loss, anemia, vomiting, immunosuppression, etc., which greatly affect the life quality of patients.
    2. Unstable treatment effect: Patients are prone to problems such as drug resistance and immunosuppression to chemotherapy drugs, resulting in a decrease in treatment effect, an increase in complications and in treatment difficulty.
    3. Long treatment cycle: Usually 8-24 times, affecting the patient's life and work.
