  1. One in eight women in the United States has a life-threatening mass to experience breast-cancer.
  2. Incidence continues to increase while mortality remains the same. The most common type of breast cancer is ductal infarction carcinoma (75% of cases).
  3. These tumors are hard on palpation, usually axillary to axillary nodes, and have a worse prognosis than other tilapia breast-cancer.
  4. Inflammatory lobular carcinoma is responsible for 5-10% of cases.
  5. These tumors come with multicenter tumors and clear-cut thickening.
  6. The axillary nodes are exposed equally to infiltrating ductal carcinomas, but different metastatic sites.
  7. Ductal carcinoma usually spreads in the lungs, lungs, liver, or brain, while lobular carcinoma metastasizes meningeal surface or in other unusual places.
  8. There are many other types of breast-cancer, indicated by various percentages and prognosis.
  9. Now there is no cure for breast cancer.
  10. There is no specific cause; it seems that genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors can support the development of this cancer.
  11. If the lymph nodes are not affected, then the prognosis will be better. The key to improved healing is early diagnosis before attacking metabolism.



  • Breast Cancer is one of the most common cancers found in Indonesia is usually found in cancer aged 40-44 years and most locations in the upper kernron laternal
  • The most common type of breast cancer is ductal infarction carcinoma (75% of cases). Inflammatory lobular carcinoma is responsible for 5-10% of cases. The affected nodusilaris is the same in the ductal carcinoma of the infiltrate, but the place of treatment is different, ductal carcinoma usually spreads in the liver, lung, liver, or brain, while lobular carcinoma metastasizes meningeal surface or in other unusual places.


The etiology of breast cancer is still developing. However, some patient risk factors are suspected to be associated with the incidence of the breast cancer, namely:

  1. Age> 30 years
  2. Delivery of the first child at age> 35 years
  3. Not married and nullipara
  4. Age menars <12 years
  5. Age of menopause> 55 years
  6. Have had an infection, trauma, or surgical operation of benign breast tumor
  7. Old hormonal therapy
  8. Have contralateral breast cancer
  9. Have had gynecological surgery such as ovarian tumor
  10. Ever experienced a radiation in the area of the chest
  11. Family history with breast cancer on mother, sister, mother, sister, brother/sister
  12. Oral contraceptives in patients with benign breast tumors such as malignant fibroctical disorders



The Breast Cancer is one of the most dangerous cancers in the world. The disease makes the life become unhappy  for the sufferers. But Breast Cancer is not coming suddenly. There are signs that can be destroyed earlier before become dangerous.

Breast cancer is also a frightening disease for sufferers. But breast cancer can be overcome properly if anticipated early. For that girls and women need to be given sufficient information to avoid this disease.

There are several categories of breast cancer stages. This is supposed to show the severity of the disease in a patient. 

The Stages 

The tumor has stage I-IV depending on size, affected lymph node, and metastasis (Other stages are expressed in TNM symbols: T = primary tumor, N = involved lymph node, M = metastasis).

The following is an explanation of the stage of breast cancer, namely:

  • Stage I: Small tumor less than 2 cm. Negative lymph node. There are no detected metastases.
  • Stage II: Tumor larger than 2 cm but less than 5 cm. Non-fixated lymph node negative or positive. Also no detected metastases.
  • Stage III: Tumor larger than 5 cm, or tumor of any size with a skin invasion or chest wall or positive fixed lymph nodes in the clavicular area without evidence of metastasis.
  • Stage IV: The tumor of any size with positive or negative lymph nodes with distant metastases.

The Management

  • Modified radical mastectomy: the entire breast tissue is removed together with the axillary lymph nodes.
  • breast-conservation surgery: segmental lumpectomy, or quadranectomy, and axillary dyslexery followed by radiation therapy against residual microscopic disease.
  • Mastectomy provides the maximum chance of removal of affected tumors and nodes.
  • A series of external beam radiation therapy on tumor mass to reduce the chances of recurrence and eradication of residual cancer.
  • Chemotherapy is very important for the eradication of the spread of micrometastases of the disease, eg, Cytoxan (C), Methotrexate (M), Fluorouracil (F), and Adriamycin (A).
  • CMF or CAF regimens are a frequent treatment protocol.
  • Autologous bone marrow transplants (ABMT) today often indicate an increase in their use. The use of growth factors to stimulate bone marrow has a high mortality decrease.
  • Hormonal therapy based on estrogen and progesterone receptor index.
  • Tamoxifen is the principal hormonal agent used to suppress hormone-dependent tumors.
  • Other hormonal preparations are Megace, DES, Halotestin, and Cytadren.
  • Elective reconstructive surgery provides psychological benefits. But is contraindicated if cancer is a local, metastatic, or inflammatory stage.

Post-operative Assessment

  1. Monitor pulse and blood pressure against signs of shock and hemorrhage.
  2. Avoid measuring blood pressure, injection, IV flow, and venous function on the operated side to prevent infection and disruption of circulation.

Nursing diagnoses

Diagnosis Preoperative Pregnancy
