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!

guidelines for making a wise healthcare decisions
Weegy: In most cases, [ calling your doctor is all that is needed to manage a problem at home that you are not comfortable or familiar with; this is often the quickest way to determine if the doctor thinks that you should make an appointment for a more though evaluation in the office. If you plan to call your doctor, prepare for the call. Write down a simple one sentence description of the problem that concerns you. Then list 2 or 3 questions about this problem that you want to have answered. Have a list of your symptoms handy. Have a list of the things that you have already tried and whether these have helped or not. Have a calendar handy in case your doctor suggests that you need to schedule an appointment. If you have to leave a message, tell the person or the answering machine in a clear simple one sentence description who you are, what your problem is and how you can be contacted. If you believe that the problem is urgent, tell the receptionist who takes the call or include in your message that you believe that the problem is urgent and have the message relayed as soon as possible to the doctor; again always leave a number where and when you can be contacted. When the doctor calls you back, use the same guidelines; briefly and clearly describe your problem and your symptoms. If your doctor prescribes medication, you will need to provide the phone number for your pharmacy. If your doctor recommends an office visit, you will need to have a calendar available. If you think your problem is an emergency, it might be better to simply go to the nearest emergency room to prevent your problem from getting significantly more serious. ] (More)
