Thermography can see the blood supply that feeds a tumor in its microscopic infancy, and the only way to possibly detect it in that stage is to establish a thermographic baseline and monitor every year for the real early signs. The real danger of breast cancer is determined by whether or not it has spread to a vital organ. If it is going to spread, it has had many years to do so. We deserve earlier detection, and thermography is capable of doing so. Therefore knowing the early stages of Breast Cancer is important.
Stages of Breast Cancer
If a women diagnosed with Breast Cancer and she will know the stage of her cancer then this will help her and her doctor to know about the your cancer position and decide on your ahead treatment. Doctors will know about the stage of cancer by many means like Breast thermography Scan, test, imaging, X-rays and blood test, etc. The stages are in the number; the higher the number the more advanced is cancer. The following are the stages of Breast Cancer are as follows:
1. Stage 0
2. Stage 1
3. Stage 2
4. Stage 3
5. Stage 4
How Stage is determined?
It is determined by the size of the tumor, number of lymph node affected and signs indicates cancer affects or spreads across the other organs of body. If breast cancer spreads it may be found in bones, brain, liver and lungs
Stage 0: As stated above higher the number, there is more advanced development of cancer. This stage is early stage of cancer means it represents the earliest detection of breast cancer development. The cancer cells are confirmed to very limited area. And cancer in this stage can be very effectively treated and survivable.
Stage 1: In Stage 1 the cancer cells are found where first abnormal cells begun to develop. In this stage also it can be treated very effectively. Stage 1 is divided into Stage1A and Stage1B.
Stage 1A: The tumor size in this stage is only peanut and not spread to lymph nodes.
Stage 1B: The lymph nodes have cancer cells and size of tumor is approx to the size of rice grain. And another chance is there is no tumor found in breast
Stage 2: In second stage the cancer starts to grow and spreads. This stage is also divided into 2 parts i.e. Stage 2A and Stage 2B
Stage 2A: There are 3 possibilities in stage 2A. One is No tumor but cancer spreads to the lymph nodes. Second is there is tumor but less than 2 cm and cancer has spread to lymph nodes and third is there is tumor but between 2 to 5 cm and cancer does not spread to lymph nodes.
Stage 2B: In stage 2B there is only 2 possibilities. First is Tumor is between 2 to 5 cm and cancer spread to lymph nodes. Second is tumor lager than 5 cm but cancer does not spread to lymph nodes.
Stage 3: In this stage the cancer is extended beyond the immediate region of the tumor but not spread to the other organs of the body. But this stage is advanced and harder to fight. This stage is further divided into 3 parts i.e. stage 3A, stage 3B, stage 3C.
Stage 3A: This stage follow the 3 descriptions, First is Tumor is less than 2cm and cancer spreads to nearby 4to9 lymph’s nodes. Second is the size of tumor is larger than 5 cm means same as that of a lime and small clusters of cancer is also found in lymph nodes. And the last means third description is that size of tumor is same as that of small lime and cancer is spread to lymph nodes near breastbone and underarm.
Stage 3B: In this stage cancer is spread into chest wall and skin around the breast with inflammation, swelling and ulcers. The size of tumor is of any size.
Stage 3C: T his stages means cancer has been found in 10 or more lymph nodes and also spread above and below the collar bone. There are 3 descriptions about this stage. First one is there is no tumor (in case of inflammatory breast cancer) or there is tumor of any size and cancer is spread to more than 10 lymph nodes. Second is tumor spreads to collar bone and third is cancer is spread to lymph nodes near underarm or breastbone.
Stage 4: In this stage the cancer cells spreads far away from the breast and lymph nodes around it. It begins to spreads into lungs, liver and brain also. This stage is considered as incurable but with the help of advanced medical and research technology means life of stage 4 cancer patients can be extend the life to several years.
