Breast Cancer Education

The importance of breast cancer awareness cannot be underestimated — early detection in the form of screening significantly improves the prognosis. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers amongst women in the United States. It usually originates in the milk ducts or lobules (milk-producing glands), but it can eventually spread to other parts of the body.

Thanks to increasing breast cancer awareness, the prognosis of breast cancer has improved significantly in recent years. The earlier you identify breast cancer, the less invasive the treatments, the higher the chance of success, and the lower the risk of recurrence. As such, you must remain vigilant, perform regular self-examinations, and go for regular breast cancer screenings, especially if you have a high risk.

We are committed to promoting breast cancer education and awareness amongst all our patients. We provide comprehensive risk assessment and counseling to help you determine the likelihood of developing breast cancer in your lifetime. If you’re a high-risk patient, we also curate personalized risk mitigation programs and offer counseling to help you make lifestyle changes to minimize the risk of breast cancer.

Coordination of Care

Dr. Katherina Calvillo works in coordination with numerous oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, nurses, and other breast cancer specialists, hospitals, and academic centers. We take a holistic and comprehensive approach to your breast cancer care. Based on the expertise of various specialists, Dr. Calvillo curates a personalized patient care program for you and oversees all treatments. Our coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer care ensures optimal results.
