N510 Cancer of the Breast
Cancer is understood medically as the unusual growth, self-division and development of a separate self-sustainable network of blood cells within the body. The cancerous cells convert into tumor and because of taking a fresh supply of nutrients to survive; they are seen as the most dangerous of all kinds of diseases.
Pathophysiology of Breast Cancer
The body is made up of trillions of cells. The cell growth, differentiation elongation, enlargement as well as division and the ultimate death of the cell. Cancer develops whenever there is an abnormal growth of body cells. Regardless of where a cancer is originating from, the excessive growth of cells may cause the formation of tumors or lesions. Breast cancer usually originate in the cells of the
east and is malignant. (Heuther, 2014).
Common Clinical Manifestations
Common clinical manifestations of
east cancer is the growth of a node over the
east that is not painful initially however; it can be felt in size and firmness by measuring its structure. There could also be gain or loss of weight, distu
ed stomach, and loss of concentration or appetite as well as random memory loss. (Chlebowski et al. 2015).
Some differential diagnosis for
east cancer include
east abscesses and masses,
oadenomas and cysts, and
east lymphoma. (Chalasani 2018).
Lab Tests that confirm Diagnosis and Expected Results
Lab tests that confirms
east cancer diagnosis is biopsy, which seems to be the most prominent and accurate test to give the best results. MRI and CT scan provide the tentative idea of the structuring of the cancerous cells but it is the process of biopsy that gives access to the measuring of the clear state of disease.
ent Protocol for Treatment
XXXXXXXXXXBreast cancers are treated with the stage of the disease being an important factor in the type of treatment given. Treatment for stages one through three involve the use of surgery and radiation therapy with chemotherapy before or after surgery has been ca
east cancer like any form of cancer is considered a dangerous disease. Breast cancer occurs when cells of the
east grows out of control which leads to formations of tumors or lesions. Common clinical manifestations of
east cancer include the growth of a node on the
east, weight loss among others. Some differential diagnosis for
east cancer are
east abscesses, fi
o adenoma and lymphoma. Lab tests that confirm
east cancer is biopsy and the cu
ent protocol for treatment depends on the stage of the cancer.
