The available dataset of early breast cancer patients, representing all three stages (I-11.75%, II-66.79% and III-21.64%) have been analysed, for over-all survival (OS) and disease free survival (DFS), following upfront surgery as part of first step towards curative treatment. Although the analysed data emanates from three participating institutions namely Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute & Research Centre (RGCI&RC), Delhi; Apollo Cancer Institutes (ACI), Chennai and Chennai Breast Centre (CBC), Chennai, the results of the studies reported (Scientific Reports, 2020, 10, 5886) has the potential for serving as a benchmark for future studies.1
A diligent evaluation of the data of 3453 patients, the largest cohort of non-metastatic breast cancer, who have undergone surgery as their first step towards treatment, reveals excellent OS and DFS survival, when good follow-ups are maintained with the oncologist. The DFS, following surgical removal of tumours below 3 cm, as a first step of treatment, being good (> 85%), the physical examination of the breast by women and the physicians becomes extremely important and relevant.
At the Chennai Breast Centre (CBC), with Dr. Selvi Radhakrishna, as an eminent leading consultant oncoplastic surgeon, women across all age groups and from all sections of society, should have no inhibitions in periodic examination of their breasts for timely detection of malignant tumors and their early removal.
