Management of Early Triple Negative Breast Cancer
Management of early triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) requires a comprehensive approach to ensure optimal outcomes. Early TNBC refers to breast cancer that is diagnosed at an early stage, before it has spread to lymph nodes or distant sites. The management of early TNBC typically involves a combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and systemic treatments. Surgery is the primary treatment for early TNBC and usually involves a lumpectomy or mastectomy. Lumpectomy involves removing the tumor and a small margin of surrounding healthy tissue, while mastectomy involves removing the entire breast. The choice between lumpectomy and mastectomy depends on various factors, including tumor size, location, and patient preference. Following surgery, radiation therapy is often recommended to reduce the risk of cancer recurrence in the breast. Systemic treatments, such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormonal therapy, are commonly used in the management of early TNBC.

Basics of endoscopy for Gynecology Treatment
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive medical procedure used in gynecology for diagnostic and treatment purposes. It involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera (hysteroscope or laparoscope) into the vaginal or abdominal cavity to visualize and examine the reproductive organs, such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Gynecological endoscopy allows for the diagnosis of conditions like fibroids, polyps, and endometriosis, as well as the performance of surgical procedures like hysterectomy, myomectomy, and tubal ligation with smaller incisions and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery, making it a valuable tool in women's healthcare.
