Mastectomy cost in India

Mastectomy in India.

Mastectomy is one of the oldest procedures that is performed to get rid of cancerous cells in the breast tissue. This is a surgery where the entire breast tissue is sometimes removed along with the muscle as well as the skin. It is considered as a local therapy to remove cancerous cells, rather than a systemic type of therapy like chemotherapy. Mastectomy is extensively performed in India by some of the top oncologists from the world.

Cost Comparison

The cost of the Mastectomy surgery, when performed in India, is quite less when compared to the other western countries like the United States or London. The standard of care is also comparable to these places in the west. If you do consider the total cost of the surgery including the medication, the post-operative care facilities, the rooms for staying as well as the food and accommodation for the people who are with the patient, this cost is still very less and affordable than other countries.

About the Mastectomy

Mastectomy refers to the partial or complete surgical removal of one or both the breasts. This surgery is most often indicated for breast cancer.

A lump in the breast or armpits is one of the earliest signs of breast cancer. It can cause a change in the shape, size, or color of the breast or nipple. Nipple tenderness, inward folding of the nipple, discharge from the nipple, and orange peel appearance of the skin of the breast are the other signs of breast cancer. Patients who observe any of the above-mentioned signs must see their physician immediately.

Who are advised to undergo breast cancer mastectomy?

Your physician may recommend you to undergo a partial or full mastectomy in the following conditions:

  • If you have a massive malignant tumor in the breast or invasive ductal carcinoma
  • If you have had a recurrent breast cancer after initial lumpectomy
  • If you are pregnant and have been diagnosed with breast cancer and radiation therapy is contraindicated
  • If you have a medical history of scleroderma and have been diagnosed with breast cancer
  • If you are diagnosed with breast cancer and have a lump in the armpits

Additionally, if you have a family history of breast cancer or deleterious mutation of BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes, you are advised preventive mastectomy.

How is Mastectomy performed?

Pre-surgical steps

  • Securing an intravenous line
  • Oral administration of sedative drugs to facilitate placement of a breathing tube
  • Placement of breathing tube
  • Administration of general anesthesia
  • Disinfecting the surgical site

Surgical Procedure

Three types of mastectomy surgeries can be performed in the patients, depending on the extent of the tumor as determined by the CT scan and mammography reports.

Simple mastectomy

This type of mastectomy is carried out when the tumor is small and the surrounding lymph nodes are not infiltrated by the tumor cells. When mastectomy is conducted on both the breast, it is known as double mastectomy. This is also used in cases of invasive ductal carcinoma.

 Step 1: Surgical incision at the site of tumor in the breast or breasts or invasive ductal carcinoma (in the case of double mastectomy)

Step 2: Retraction of the intervening tissue

Step 3: Resection of a tumor along with some normal tissue

Step 4: Establishment of drainage

Step 5: Surgical closure of the wound

Modified radical mastectomy:

This procedure is performed when the tumor is large and involves a few lymph nodes.

Step 1: Surgical incision across the nipple

Step 2: Retraction of the intervening tissue

Step 3: Resection of the tumor along with some normal tissue

Step 4: Resection of lymph nodes into which the tumor cells drain (sentinel biopsy)

Step 5: Establishment of drainage

Step 6: Surgical closure of the wound

Radical mastectomy:

This procedure is carried out when the tumor is extensive and involves all the lymph nodes and muscles of the breast.

Step 1: Surgical incision across the breast

Step 2: Retraction of the breast tissue

Step 3: Resection of a tumor, muscle and connective tissue of the breast

Step 4: Resection of all the lymph nodes of that side of the body

Step 5: Establishment of drainage

Step 6: Surgical closure of the wound

Apart from the above three procedures, there is lumpectomy (removal of just the lump along with some of the surrounding tissue) and subcutaneous mastectomy (nipple and skin tissue are not removed).

Recovery from Mastectomy

As the anesthetic effect starts to wear off, you may start experiencing pain. Analgesics are administered through an intravenous line for the first two days after the anesthetic effect wears-off. In the case of a simple breast cancer mastectomy, the drainage tubes are removed in the immediate post-operative period. They are retained for two days if you undergo a radical mastectomy. Any signs of inflammation or redness should be immediately reported, as it may indicate infection.

Initially, clear fluid diet is given during the recovery period and then this is slowly progressed to solid food. You should take sponge baths until the incision heals to prevent the occurrence of an infection.  You may keep the arms elevated to prevent the accumulation of fluid in the breast cavity. The hospital stay for radical mastectomy is one to two days. The complete recovery may take up to six weeks.

  • If you have previously undergone lumpectomies and the tumor or cancerous cells have not been completely removed by other procedures.

What are the different types of Mastectomy Surgeries conducted in India?

There are many types of mastectomy surgeries that are performed in India; some of them are as follows:

  • Simple Mastectomy: This is also called the whole mastectomy procedure. This is where the entire breast tissue is removed. The auxiliary contacts are not disturbed in this surgery. This surgery is also done on both the breasts simultaneously, if the patient opts for it as a preventative measure against cancer. Reconstruction is usually done after this to make the breast with artificial elements like silicon.

  • Lumpectomy: In this procedure, the tumour, as well as a small amount of the surrounding cells, are also removed. Lymph nodes may or may not be removed in this type of surgery. This is usually performed if the lump is easily identified by the doctor and can be easily removed. Multiple Lumpectomy procedures can be performed on the same breast tissue.

  • Partial Mastectomy: In this type of surgery a considerably large amount of breast tissue is removed. Some amount of skin is also removed along with the tumor. This will also include the removal of the chest muscle lining near the tumor along with some lymph nodes.

  • Modified radical Mastectomy: In this, the complete breast tissue is removed. The auxiliary contents like the lymph nodes and the fatty tissue are also removed. But the muscles in the pectoral region are not removed.

  • Radial Mastectomy: In this, the complete tissue of the breast is removed along with the auxiliary contents and also the pectoral region muscles are also removed. This is also called as the Halsted mastectomy. This surgery completely disfigures the breast and is recommended only if there are cancerous cells in the pectoral region.

  • Skin Sparing Mastectomy – This is one of the most common mastectomy procedures in recent years conducted by surgeons. In this the breast tissue is removed through a cut in the areola. This is usually meant only for people who have only breast cancer and not cancer of the skin as well. This is a procedure that has very less scarring after the surgery, and the breast can also be reconstructed once the surgery is done. This reconstruction is an option that is left to the patient.

  • Subcutaneous mastectomy – This particular procedure is also referred to as the nipple-sparing mastectomy procedure. In this particular variety of the procedure, the nipple, as well as the areola complex, is left unharmed but the breast tissue is still removed. The reconstruction of the breast after this surgery is easier as the nipples and areolas are left intact. The overlying skin is also left in this surgery. Unfortunately, because of the leaving of some cells near the areolas and the nipples, some amount of cancer cells may still remain in the breast.
