We at BirthRight by Rainbow Hospitals have expert oncologists that provide the following services :
Surgery: Breast Conservation Surgery, Mastectomy, Axillary Surgery or any other as per the requirement.
Chemotherapy: It is a treatment using anti- cancer drugs to destroy cancer cells. There are different types and combinations, given intravenously or orally.
Radiotherapy: Radiation therapy is carefully measured and controlled high energy X-rays to destroy cancer cells locally (breast and surrounding tissue). Depending on the type of surgery you have had and other factors such as number of involved nodes, high-risk features, you will receive radiation to certain areas as decided by your radiation oncologist.
Hormone Therapy: If your tumor expresses estrogen and progesterone receptors, you will be advised to take hormonal therapy, targeting the driving force of the tumor. There are a number of hormone therapies that work in different ways to block or stop the effect of estrogen on cancer cells. However, if you are hormone receptor negative, such therapies will not be of any effect.
Targeted Therapy: Targeted therapies are a group of drugs that block the growth and spread of cancer. They target and interfere with the processes in the cells that cause the growth of cancer. The type of therapy depends on the features of breast cancer.
