Breast cancer is known to be a widespread problem among women. At the first stages of breast cancer it is possible to treat it, but in other cases, when it swells and develops, it is extremely hard to treat it. But nowadays the plastic surgery is gaining momentum. And there are many methods of the mammaplastic surgery, which help to treat and to correct the defects of breast, to help women with the breast cancer. It should bethe breast cancer awareness before the beginning of treating it. In fact, the plastic surgery helps women to survive with the help of the breast cancer treatment.
Medical information is necessary to understand all problems and establish methods of the breast cancer treatment. So, among women suffering from breast cancer treated with mastectomy, an increasing number seeks for the breast reconstruction. The data on potential interference by the breast reconstruction with implants on the subsequent disease detection and prognosis are limited.
Prevalence of breast cancer increase is marked all over the world now. That's why, the prevention of breast cancer is necessary and is high on the agenda. Many clinics in many countries of the world check the state of health of their patients, and if a woman is diagnosed with having cancer, she should be informed about her problem. Women who have a gene BRCA are exposed to a higher risk of appearance of breast cancer. The risk of hereditary origin of the breast cancer of such women is 65-90%. However, revealing of one gene BRCA is not sufficient for fulfillment preventive two-sized mastectomy. It is necessary to combine the revealing of a gene-oncosupresser of special type p 53, oncogene K-RAS, oncogene of a breast BRCA with the pathology of the breast. Mastopathy with high proliferarive activity, intraducktal papilloma and the combination of the indicated signs with a cancer in situations of the invasive cancer of one of the breast is the indication to fulfillment bilateral subskin mastectomy.
Let's talk about the effect that the postmastectomy breast reconstruction with breast implants has on women with breast cancer. The aim of this experiment is to evaluate overall survival and recurrence-free survival of breast cancer patients and patients, who had undergone delayed breast reconstruction with implants, compared with a non-reconstructed control group of breast cancer, and patients matched on a disease stage and the breast cancer treatment.
According to the data from The Danish National Hospital Register, and the Danish Cancer Register 608 women were diagnosed with breast cancer under 70, who over the period of 1978-1992 underwent mastectomy, and later breast reconstruction with an implant (index patients). A control group of twice as many women without breast reconstruction (n=1213) was identified in the Danish Breast Cancer Group (DBCG) database, matched on adjuvant treatment protocol, age, tumor size, lymph node status and so on. The result of the experiment is breast postmastectomy breast reconstruction with implants did not influence the overall survival or the recurrence-free survival.
So, the conclusion we have arrived is that postmastectomy breast reconstruction with implants do not influence the prognosis for women who have had breast cancer.
