Treatment Strategies for Stage One Breast Cancer

Treatment Strategies for Stage One Breast Cancer


>>>Dr. JAY HARNESS: Stage 1 breast cancer
is and invasive breast cancer. It is smaller than 2 cm in size and the lymph nodes are
negative by definition. Stage 1 breast cancer can typically be treated
either by a lumpectomy or in medical terms, a partial mastectomy, or a mastectomy. The options then include with mastectomy having
reconstruction or not, and with lumpectomy patients who have stage 1 breast cancer require
radiation therapy. That radiation therapy can be done is partial breast radiation therapy
or whole breast radiation therapy. It’s important to remember that even though
a cancer is Stage 1 and the lymph nodes are negative, that does not mean that the whole
body doesn’t have to be treated. The good news with Stage 1 breast cancer is
it’s small; the good news with Stage 1 breast cancer is that the lymph nodes are negative,
but it’s important to remember that the whole body needs to be treated as well as the local
regional control of the cancer in the breast, and that’s a good definition of Stage 1 breast
cancer. Susan Denver: I am a breast cancer survivor. Katherine Stockton: I am a breast cancer survivor. Coree: I am a breast cancer survivor. Susan Denver: And I want every woman to know… Katherine Stockton: …about personalized
