Breast cancer refers to cancers occurring in the breast tissues, developed due to uncontrolled division of different cells of the breast. Bangalore, sadly, is known to be the breast cancer capital of India. Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be quite devastating for a woman. For this reason, we have invested ourselves in building a dedicated women's oncology setup that manages all cancers related to women. Studies show that early breast cancer treatment has better outcome and prognosis, which is possible only if there is good awareness among women about breast cancer symptoms and evaluation methods. With organ site specialists who have extensive experience in breast oncology and imaging, Cytecare provides accurate diagnosis for better clinical judgement regarding therapeutic choices.
Cytecare provides comprehensive services, including minimally invasive procedures and surgical techniques designed for minimal post-operative discomfort and issues such as lymphedema. The holistic evaluation and treatment plan includes breast cancer risk assessment and screening, breast imaging, breast cancer surgery (lumpectomy, mastectomy), breast reconstruction, and support services for women living with breast cancer.
We have an on-going commitment towards breast cancer prevention and early detection. Early detection of breast cancer allows the best outcome, both in terms of survival and quality of life. Hence, we provide comprehensive and risk-stratified, individualised screening for breast Cancer, in addition to detailed risk assessment and genetic screening for women with family history of breast cancer.
