Patient from Uzbekistan for Breast Cancer Treatment
We had a patient from Uzbekistan who had Carcinoma Breast Left. It is caused due to abnormal growth of breast tissue and is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. After repeated failure to get the fright diagnosis done in her home country, they decided to look for top doctors in India. They reached out to us and we helped them set up an appointment with the right doctor in Fortis Hospital.
About the Problem:
Breast cancer results from abnormal growth of breast issue. It occurs quite often in women and rarely in men. Symptoms include pain around the armpits, change of skin color around the breast, rash or lump around the breast, etc. If untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body including brain, lungs, liver, etc.

Initially scared, with encouragement from her family, she visited ever recommended doctor but could get the right diagnosis.
