What does Early Stage Breast Cancer Mean

The breast cancer is categorized as Stage I, II (A or B), III (A, B, or C) or IV and it is based on the size of the tumor and whether the cancer has spread. The early stage breast cancer mean stages I, IIA, IIB and IIIA and it refer that the cancer may have spread to the nearby lymph nodes but not to the distant parts of the body.

How Does Breast cancer Spread

If cancer spreads to the other parts of the body, then it is called as metastasis. The breast cancer can spread by invading the nearby healthy tissue such as chest wall, or onvading the lymphatic system, a part of the immune system containing a network of lymph nodes and lymph vessels which are found throughout the body or by invading the blood vessels in the breast. The cancer cells can travel through the blood stream to the other parts of the body such as bones or lungs.

When the cancer cells spread, they can cause tumors to grow in other parts of the body. The breast cancer which forms the tumors in other parts of the body as lungs is still breast cancer.

How is Early stages Breast cancer Treated

The early stages breast cancer can be treated in more than one approach. Women with early stage breast cancer have two surgical treatment choices:
  • Mastectomy: During total mastectomy, the surgeon removed the while breast having cancer and possibly some lymph nodes under the arm. During modified radical mastectomy, the whole breast plus many lymph nodes under the arm, the lining over the chest muscles and sometimes, the part of the chest wall muscles are removed.
  • Breast sparing surgery followed by radiation therapy: Also called as breast conserving surgery includes lumpectomy and partial mastectomy. During lumpectomy, the tumor and some surrounding normal tissues are removed and during partial mastectomy, a portion of the breast containing the tumor is removed. Women having breast sparing surgery often have the lymph nodes under the arm removed. This surgery keep the breast intact- looking a lot like it did before the surgery.

Chemotherapy uses the drugs to kill the cancer cells or stop them from dividing. In some cases, it may be used before surgery in order to shrink the size of a tumor so that woman can have the breast sparing surgery. This is called as neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
