Breast Cancer

Hearing that you have breast cancer is a scary and life-changing event, but the Blanchard Valley Health System cancer care team is here to help guide you through the process and help you make the best decisions. The majority of those who receive a diagnosis of breast cancer are cured of their disease after treatments such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or hormonal therapy. Some may require only one of these treatments, while others may need a combination of therapies. Use the educational links below to learn more about breast cancer.

Education

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (other than skin cancer). The American Cancer Society reports the breast cancer death rate is declining, probably because of earlier detection and improved treatment. This short assessment will help you determine if you have major risk factors for breast cancer.
