There is no guaranteed cure for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and the long-term outlook depends on the person's specific case. Treatment protocols, such as chemotherapy, may be able to help manage the disease, but the goal is usually to help manage symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease. Your friend’s doctor can provide more information on specific treatments and prognosis.

There are several different methods of surgery that can be used to treat right breast cancer. The most common treatments are mastectomy (removal of the entire breast), breast-conserving surgery, and lymph node dissection. The type of surgery for you will depend on the size and location of the tumor, the stage of the cancer, and the your individual preferences. The methodology for performing surgery at Tata Memorial Hospital is likely to be similar to that of other hospitals in Hyderabad. However, there may be slight differences due to the individual expertise and experience of the surgeons at each hospital. You discuss your options with your doctor and ask for their opinion on the best type of surgery for you.
