Breast cancer treatment in the Friedrichshafen clinic, Germany

After studying your medical documentation, Friedrichshafen specialists led by Dr. Hans-Walter Vollert, will offer you an individual solution. There is a wide range of treatment options from chemotherapy via breast cancer surgery to plastic breast reconstruction.

The following factors are especially important, while selecting an optimal cancer treatment option:

  • The size of the tumor
  • Properties of the tumor cell
  • The presence of hormone receptors in the tumor
  • Dispersion of cancer cells (metastasis)
  • Surgical treatment (including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery techniques)
  • Medication
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Treatment with antibodies
  • Immunomodulators

Surgical breast cancer therapy

Operative treatment is one of the main therapy options for breast cancer. The modern and efficient forms of breast cancer surgery often allow not only eliminating the tumor, but also saving the breast of the patient, which is extremely important for their psychological wellbeing. If for some reason organ-saving surgery is not possible, and the patient needs a partial or full organ resection, the Friedrichshafen specialists can offer good options for subsequent breast reconstruction.

In which cases breast-saving surgery can be used?

The following criteria usually indicate the possibility of organ-saving operational procedures:

  • Tumor diameter is less than 2 cm
  • Tumor nodes do not to touch nipples
  • Inflammatory foci are not present in the tumor nodes
  • Tumor nodes do not spread to the tissue surrounding the milk ducts
  • Tumor arose from glandular breast ducts, but not from the breast lobules

Due to the modern diagnostic examination methods such as mammography, sonography, computed and magnetic resonance imaging, it is usually possible to determine the nature of the tumor before the mamma cancer surgery takes place. In case the tumor is larger than 2 cm, the specialists usually recommend undergoing the neoadjuvant chemotherapy in order to reduce the size of the tumor, which would allow a sparing surgery.

Other kinds of breast cancer therapy

Other therapeutic methods that can replace or supplement breast cancer surgery are chemotherapy, radiation or hormone therapy and immunotherapy. When choosing an appropriate treatment method, specialists take into account two important factors: the stage of the malignant breast tumor and the presence or absence of metastases. In addition to breast cancer surgery and radiation therapy, specialists may also recommend adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy or hormonal therapy, which can considerably improve the chances of complete recovery of the patient. Adjuvant therapy usually complements the primary breast cancer therapy, for example, surgery. Neoadjuvant therapy, in the contrary, is performed prior to the surgery and aims to reduce the size of the tumor before the intervention.

Breast cancer treatment in the Friedrichshafen clinic is a meticulously planned process beginning with the preventive diagnostics and ending with the post-surgical care and rehabilitation.
