The awareness and right knowledge about probability diagnostics, prevention, and treatment of Stage 3 breast cancer could help to save lives of people suffering from it.

The treatment alternatives of Stage 3 breast cancer vary widely. The local treatment covers radical or modified mastectomy or lumpectomy. The option depends on diagnosed 3A, 3B or 3C stages of the disease. The radiation therapy after surgery can destroy missing cancer cells. Besides, the systemic treatment may consist of chemotherapy, which is acceptable if surgery is not an option. The hormone therapy helps to destroy cancer cells that remain after surgery and can make chemotherapy more effective. The targeted therapy is also appropriate to stop cancer cells growing. Therefore, mastectomy is not the most appropriate clinical treatment for stage 3 breast cancer, because this option is conditional (Ratini, 2015).

Moreover, BRCA1/2 tests are pertinent to detect mutations that increase the risk of breast cancer in family members and to identify a chance of disease relapse in a person who already has it. Consequently, women with breast cancer and with positive BRCA have a high risk of acquiring a second type of cancer. In such a case, double mastectomy is considered as a preventative measure against the cancer spreading, as breast-conserving therapy plus radiation therapies treat to and reduce the chance of developing a second cancer in the same breast.

Besides, physicians can make a 5-year observed survival rate based on the diagnosed stage of cancer. It can lead to improvements in treatment with a more favorable outlook for people with diagnosed disease. The National Cancer Institute’s SEER database gives 72 % of survival chance for women with Stage 3 cancer.

Regarding the woman who already has children and is after two weeks out from radical mastectomy surgery, nursing support can contain such help options. Nurses can help to control symptoms, especially chronic pain, which frequently happens after surgery. They further to liaise between her relatives, GPs, and the hospital after such short recovery period to improve the quality of life during a stressful time. The nurses can also help with routine such as dressings, taking medicines or getting her specialist equipment after the operation or/and during recovery.

In conclusion, the Stage 3 breast cancer has a wide diapason of diagnostics, treatment, and after-medical intervention methods to facilitate its efficient curing and recovery.
