Breast cancer

AP, a 52-year-old woman, came to the hospital and complained of several signs. These included reddening of the nipple, breast discharge, which was not breast milk and had bloodstains, lump swell at the edge of the breast near the armpit, and general swelling and discomfort. She said that at first, the symptoms looked normal since it was only itching of the nipple, so she did not undergo any medication. She admitted that symptoms continued to worsen with pain in the chest, neck, and back pains which caused everyday fatigue, nausea, and lack of appetite. She had not undergone any lab tests and had only been under pain relievers.


Mammogram and ultrasound tests were conducted since her condition seemed to worsen to see any cancer cells. It was confirmed that the patient had breast cancer, and two procedures were conducted. These were chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In chemotherapy, drugs were inducted into the veins of the patient near the chest, which lasted an hour. The procedure was done to kill rapidly growing cells within the breast.

Radiation was done after lumpectomy, which was the removal of the swollen lump. This was done to prevent the risk of breast cancer recurrence in the affected breast.
