CK Birla Hospital® Transforms Breast Lump Treatment with Advanced Biopsy Technique
CK Birla Hospital® has achieved a remarkable breakthrough in breast lump treatment with the successful application of Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy (VABB). This cutting-edge technique offers a more effective and scar-free alternative to the traditional surgical removal of benign breast lumps, providing patients with a new level of comfort and confidence in their healthcare journey.
Revolutionizing Non-Cancerous Breast Tumor Removal
A 26-year-old patient presented a persistent breast lump that had grown over the course of four years. Following a thorough diagnostic process, CK Birla Hospital®’s medical team, led by Dr Rohan Khandelwal from The Breast Centre, recommended the adoption of Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy (VABB). This innovative approach allowed for the precise and minimally invasive removal of a 10 cm fibroadenoma lump through a small 2mm incision.
Empowering Women’s Health with Advanced Technology
Dr Rohan Khandelwal explained that Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy holds immense promise for young and unmarried patients who are often concerned about visible scars. As fibroadenomas are common among women aged 15 to 35, VABB’s precise and scar-free removal offers a significant improvement in patient experience. The young patient who underwent the procedure was able to resume her daily activities just one day after surgery.
CK Birla Hospital®: Setting New Standards in Patient Care
With approval from the FDA (USA) and NICE (UK) for fibroadenoma removal, Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy stands as a groundbreaking solution in breast healthcare. CK Birla Hospital®, Gurugram, is among the pioneering healthcare institutions in North India to introduce this advanced technology. The hospital’s commitment to innovation and patient-centric care is evident in their adoption of VABB as a gold standard practice.
VABB has been approved by FDA (USA) and NICE (UK) for complete removal of fibroadenoma. This advanced technology is widely used abroad and is now available in India for helping women combat breast cancer. The CK Birla Hospital®, Gurugram is amongst one of the few hospitals in North India to use Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy technology. It increases the efficiency, accuracy, and ease of targeting small breast lesions and therefore is practiced as a gold standard across the globe.
The young patient was experiencing a lump in her breast since the last 4 years which gradually started increasing in size. On consulting the doctor, she underwent a biopsy which ruled out the presence of cancerous cells. However, she was diagnosed with fibroadenoma, a benign breast condition characterized by non-cancerous tumors made up of glandular and connective tissues. Fibroadenomas comprise about 50% of all breast biopsies in young women. A team of doctors led by Dr Rohan Khandelwal at The Breast Centre, CK Birla Hospital®, Gurugram, recommended the VABB treatment to avoid scarring on the breast. The fibroadenoma lump was removed through a minimal 2mm incision.
