HER2-Positive Breast Cancer—Reduce Your Risk of Recurrence
Reduce Your Risk of Recurrence
Every two minutes, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer somewhere in the United States. In every five women diagnosed, about one will have HER2-positive breast cancer, which is a more aggressive form of the disease known to put patients at a higher risk of recurrence.
On this episode of Access Health, host Ereka Vetrini welcomes Dr. Reshma Mahtani, a medical oncologist practicing in South Florida. Join them as they engage in an in-depth discussion on reducing the risk of recurrence in HER2-positive breast cancer.
Dr. Mahtani talks about the various options available to help reduce the risk of recurrence. We also listen to a few empowering stories from women across the country who have been diagnosed with HER2-positive breast cancer, leaving no stone unturned in their fight.
We are joined by Dr. Sivan Kinberg, Director of the Pediatric Intestinal Rehabilitation Center at Columbia University in New York, to learn about the importance of fatty acids and calories in parenteral nutrition.
