Fibroadenoma treatment In Mumbai
Done At Our Clinic
WHAT ARE FIBROADENOMAS? ARE THEY A FORM OF CANCER? KNOW IN DETAIL FROM OUR SPECIALIST
Fibroadenoma is a swelling in the breasts that is commonly found in women under 30 years of age. It is a benign, non-cancerous swelling which usually does not give rise to any specific symptoms except for fear of lumping the breast. However, it is a mobile swelling that is easily palpable and painless. The diagnosis of fibroadenoma can be done on ultrasonography or mammography. The other way to diagnose it is a needle biopsy or complete removal of the swelling and sending the entire swelling for histopathological examination.
DO FIBROADENOMAS HARM THE BREAST IF NOT TREATED? WHAT TREATMENT CAN BE EXPECTED?
Fibroadenoma or fibroadenomas are harmless swellings and do not affect the breast or body in any way except that they can increase in size and number. According to our doctor, sometimes they can grow so large that they can distort the shape of the breast; such swellings are giant fibroadenomas. Also, generally, no woman would leave a swelling in the breast undiagnosed and untreated. This is why removal of the swelling is justified treatment even if it is not going to harm you.
BRIEF BY OUR DOCTOR ABOUT PROCEDURE OF FIBROADENOMA TREATMENT :
The procedure as per the protocol of treatment at our hospital can be done as daycare surgery. Our specialist doctor performs the surgery under local or general anesthesia, depending upon the number of swellings as well as the tolerance of the patient. Dr. Ghuge understands that a young woman may be worried about the scars of surgery on her breasts and hence places the cuts for removal of the swellings so that the scars are hidden between the areola (the pigmented part around the nipple) and the breast’s skin. Dr. Ashish Ghuge specializes in the technique of the removal of multiple swellings through minimal or single cuts and hence executes accomplished surgery. These scars are usually minimally or not visible after a period of few months and definitely fade away as time passes. The swelling, once removed, is sent for histopathological diagnosis. This way our hospital and our specialist doctor provide the best possible fibroadenomas treatment.
SYMPTOMS OF RECOVERY FROM SURGERY DONE AT OUR HOSPITAL:
As per our specialist experience, you will have some swelling and bruising on your breast, which will settle in about 10 days to two weeks, depending on the surgery profile of the patient. Typically, recovery is quick, and you can get back to work within 5 days to a week. If you have swelling in your breast and worry whether it is a form of benign or cancerous tumor, do not wait to consult our doctor with possibly an ultrasound diagnosis. It is important to get the right diagnosis and treatment before it is too late.
