The line of treatment for the breast lump would depend upon the nature of the lump which could be ascertained through investigations like, MR Mammography, Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) or a Trucut Biopsy. In case the breast lump is benign or non cancerous then the breast specialist in India would advise you to get the lump removed by the surgery called lumpectomy. Whereas in case the result is positive for malignancy or cancer, mastectomy (breast removal) is advised whis followed by IHC markers to decide whether a chemotherapy is required with radiation or hormonal therapy is required for the treatment.
The cost of breast surgery depends upon the nature of the lump. The surgery may be a simple lumpectomy in case of a benign lump or a mastectomy in case of a cancerous lesion. In case it is a lumpectomy that is to be done then the cost of the surgery would be Rs. 70-80 thousand with 1-2 days stay in the hospital and post discharge stay in India would be for about 7 days. In case of mastectomy the cost would be Rs. 1,20,000 with about 3 days stay in hospital and post discharge stay in India for about 2 weeks.
