Breast Cancer in young women
Breast Cancer in young women –
When a young woman walks into a clinic and complains of a lump in the breast, the doctor’s first thought of assessment is fibroadenoma, a benign lump, which is quite common in women. This proves itself to be true in majority of cases. Most fibroadenomas do not require any biopsy. Recommending a biopsy or the removal of fibroadenoma in every woman who presents with the case would be overkill and therefore it can be just left alone. However, onece in a while, a young woman’s cancer detection gets delayed because the doctor initially assumes it to be a case of fibroadenoma. This is where the clinical acumen of the doctor plays a pivotal role.
