Apollo Proton Cancer Centre successfully performed a Palliative Mastectomy for a patient with Metastatic Breast Cancer while the patient was singing. The Surgeon at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre said it was first time worldwide, a patient was awake & singing during breast cancer surgery, despite the extensive lung metastases, thus overcoming her anxiety.

Dr. Manjula Rao, Consultant, Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon, Apollo Proton Cancer Centre, said, “I am extremely delighted with Mrs. Seethalakshmi’s recovery, and satisfied to see how elaborate counselling and keeping the patient well informed of her various options, and shared decision making, have helped her go through critical surgery with such ease. The developments in research, modern medicines and new surgical techniques have together contributed in improving cancer patients’ overall quality of life, even in advanced stages. It is crucial for men and women to be mindful of any new symptoms and to report to their doctors at the earliest. The most common symptom of breast cancer is a painless lump, and if treated before the cancer spreads to the lymph nodes, the chances of complete cure goes up to 99%!”
