Mammography Bangkok Thailand and Breast Cancer : Vejthani Woman Center

Overview of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor that forms in the breast. Although men can get breast cancer, it is far more common in women. In most of the world, breast cancer is the most common cancer found in women. In Thailand this is not true; more women suffer from cervical cancer in the Kingdom than from breast cancer. Breast cancer is, however, a significant problem and its prevalence is increasing in Thailand.

Most tumors in the breast are benign, meaning they do not invade other tissue. Cancerous tumors, on the other hand, can metastasize or spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream or through the lymphatic system. Larger tumors are more likely to metastasize. This means that early detection of malignant tumors is extremely important. This is especially true with breast cancer where early detected tumors are usually successfully treated.

Mammography at Bangkok Thailand : Vejthani Woman Center

At Vejthani Hospital we have one of the very few digital mammogram machines and latest mammography techonology in Bangkok Thailand and Asia. The mammography imaging process involves compressing the breast onto the machine to detect lumps, without exposing the breast to high levels of radiation. The mammography process is not painful, especially if performed one week after the end of the menstrual period. Ultrasound examinations are also used in detecting breast cancer, as they can help determine whether the lump is solid an indication of a more severe abnormality.

Early Detection of Breast Cancer

Detecting breast cancer in its initial stages offers a better chance of curing the disease. During this time, the cancerous cells have less chance of spreading to other organs in the body, such as the liver, heart, lungs, bones and brain. The malignant lump in the breast can often be removed, avoiding the removal of the whole breast (mastectomy). Detecting breast cancer can be accomplished with a mammography or mammogram or by self-examination.

Women under 35 without a family history of breast cancer do not need to undergo a yearly mammogram. Their chances for having the disease are slight and mammography of young women are difficult to interpret correctly. However, women under 35 who are at higher than normal risk should consult with a physician about periodic breast examinations and mammograms to ensure they have not developed breast cancer. Women over 35 should undergo annual breast examinations along with a mammogram and ultrasound exam.
