If in a routine checkup a woman discovers a pellet in the breast or several pellets in the breast, before going to the oncologist, the first thing to do is to remain calm.

A fact is that more than 80 percent of the pellets that a woman is detected in a breast are of benign origin, that is, they have nothing to do with cancer. Therefore, the first thing to do is to remain calm, and the second, to go with a qualified doctor who provides answers to the origin of this ball, either through a medical visit or through studies such as ultrasound or mast.

The recommendation is, if it detects something abnormal, take all the time in the world to choose the specialist , who can advise the patient, answering all the questions that both raise anxiety levels. The most important thing is to go to a specialist who has extensive experience both in diagnosis and in the treatment of breast diseases.

The importance of the specialist

Traditionally specialists in breast diseases are oncologists, so it is they who have a lot more experience, knowledge and more judgment to determine the origin of a pellet. This is the aim of deciding together with patients the best way in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases, which are of a very wide range, ranging from the benign to the breast cancer.

It is important to mention that when a patient is placed in the hands of a person who has extensive experience in managing their health, the success rate of healing increases.

Even more so, given the high levels of anxiety and anxiety that are manifested by finding a pellet in one breast, it is best to do things together with a medical specialist. The expectation that a woman can have in the management of her illness can be very satisfactory and with a high success rate.
