Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases one can ever have. There are many different types of cancer present in the world and most common among all of them is breast cancer found in women. It is often found in the age group of 45 to 55. It has emerged as a serious threat, and special treatment and therapies have evolved to cure it completely. If breast cancer is identified in the initial stage, then it becomes very easy for the oncologists to cure it with the specific types of treatment they feel is best for each individual patient. Breast cancer is a massive destructive increase in the number of cells, in a woman’s breast. It is very important to get diagnosed early so that treatment can be done satisfactorily. If any women finds some abnormal lump in their breasts, or they feel the colour of breast and nipples changing, then there is a high probability of occurrence of cancer, and they must get to the best health centers in Texas for further assistance. The cancer doctors use many techniques to detect breast cancer. They may advise using the technique of mammography by which they take x-ray pictures of the affected breast to see whether there is any tumour present in the vicinity of breast. Even ultrasound or an MRI can be helpful for detection of breast cancer.

Breast cancer can easily be treated using many different therapies. It becomes very easy to cure if the tumour is benign. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, as well as surgery, help to cure breast cancer. Chemotherapy is the use of highly concentrated injections containing target specific chemicals to destroy cancer causing cells. This procedure has some side-effects like loss of hair and appetite. The body loses immunity due to such drugs injected inside body. Radiation therapy is a treatment where high energy radio waves penetrate into the targeted tumour. The tumour cells are destroyed, and the body may take a more time to recover from the side effects.
