My elder sister, whose age is about 55 yrs has multiple tumours/nodes in breast and is having discharge from the nipple occasionally. She is undergoing various investigations since last one half month but no confirmation has been reported for malignancy but the doctors are still having a concept that there are posibilites of being Cancer case.Now, the doctor has given 25th of May, 2013 for surgery. I want to know wether is't too late..?
If she is underwent FNAC test within how much time the surgery must carried out. Is there any risk factors after undergoing FNAC test. If she undergoes the surgery during first week, is there any problem. So far the tumours have not been touched by the needle or knives. Please reply. I am also giving here my e-mail ID YYYY@YYYY .

Welcome to healthcaremagic
Could you please mention type of surgery she is undergoing.Is it simple biopsy,lumpectomy or more radical surgery.
FNAC is a simple procedure in which a fine needle is inserted in lump to get some cells from tumor to see in microscope.
Therefore FNAC has no relation with timing of surgery,she can undergo surgery at any time.
