guidelines for making wise health care decisions about treatment and prevention of breast cancer
We provide comprehensive treatment coordination for all cancers and serve as a gateway to access care for rare cancers at our sister institutions, including UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, [ and UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. The Treatment Plan Our comprehensive, advanced therapies for cancer can include surgery, chemotherapy,
biological therapy, and radiation therapy ? one or all four may be part of the treatment plan. Surgery is often one of the first steps on the cancer journey. It can be used to obtain a biopsy as part of the diagnosis; to prevent the spread of cancer, for example, the removal of a precancerous colon polyp; to remove a tumor; or to uncover the extent of the cancer. Chemotherapy is the use of a drug or a drug combination to kill cancer cells. There are hundreds of drugs used to treat cancer, and even more still under development or investigation. Biological therapy is a type of treatment that works with a patient?s immune system to fight cancer or help control side effects from other treatments like chemotherapy. Radiation Therapy uses high-intensity beams of radiation to destroy cancer cells. Our new Varian TrueBeam is the most current technology available in the fight against cancer. Additional treatments can include nutritional counseling and physical therapy - both have been shown to improve cancer outcomes. for more: ]

Do a breast exam one week after your period in the shower. There are also genetic counseling available for family members that have a history of breast cancer. Eating fruits with a lot of antioxidants shows that it reduces your rick for cancers. Prevention is the best cure!
