Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to grow out of control. These cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump. The tumor is malignant (cancer) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get cancer too. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer and can spread to other areas.
Breast cancers can start from different parts of the breast. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts that carry milk to the nipple (ductal cancers). Some start in the glands that make breast milk (lobular cancers). There are also other types of breast cancer that are less common.
A small number of cancers start in other tissues in the breast. These cancers are called sarcomas and lymphomas and are not really thought of as breast cancers.
Trough extensive research and gaining knowledge on this very subject Doctor Manoj has become a well trained and efficient doctor. He is well aware of the fact that there are many types of breast cancer which can cause a lump in the breast, but not all and also that many breast cancers are found on screening mammograms which can detect cancers at an earlier stage, often before they can be felt, and before symptoms develop. There are other symptoms of breast cancer one should watch for and report to a health care provider.
It’s also important to understand that most breast lumps are benign and not cancer (malignant).Non-cancerous breast tumors are abnormal growths, but they do not spread outside of the breast and they are not life threatening. But some benign breast lumps can increase a woman's risk of getting breast cancer. Doctor Manoj is an exemplary doctor who is well informed and a trained doctor for the treatment of Breast Cancer.
Any breast lump or change needs to be checked by a health care professional to determine if it is benign or malignant (cancer) and if it might affect your future cancer risk.
Dr. Manoj Kumar Sharma has spent several years working in the field of oncology, while continually updating him to the latest technology and also completing his fellowship in Proton Therapy from New Jersey. He has an understanding of cancers from a multi-disciplinary perspective having consulted on various tumor boards. He also has extensively carried out research in the field of Radiation Oncology and is more than willing to teach the same to juniors in his field.
