The Doctors: Advancements In Treating Breast Cancer
The Doctors reported that about one in eight women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, but there is now more hope than ever. They welcomed Dr Amy Bremner to talk about breast cancer breakthroughs, beginning with a certain type of therapy where radiation therapy is delivered at the time of surgery, rather than a 6-8 week course after surgery is finished. It’s not for everyone, and is particularly for those with small tumors or low-grade cancer.
Dr Amy explained that she takes the tumor out and places the “balloon” in. Then a small source that is used to deliver the radiotherapy is inserted in the balloon, which is in the cavity of the lumpectomy.
Another option, involves garlic and extra-virgin olive oil. A study was done by Observation Association, found that women who added just two tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil to their diet, lowered their risk of breast cancer over a span of five years. So pull out that bruschetta and enjoy!
