Marl. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. What modern medicine can do to help them, visitors to Bauer Media's next evening consultation hour will learn at 6:30 pm on Monday, October 14th at Paracelsus Klink Marl.
About one in eight women suffers from breast cancer during their lifetime. According to the Robert Koch Institute, approximately 74,000 new cases occur each year. But if the tumor is detected early, the chances of recovery are very good. The reasons behind this and what the treatment options are, visitors find out next evening at the Bauer Media Counseling Center at the Marler Paracelsus Polyclinic, the operating center of the Recklinghausen Breast Center. On Monday, October 14, the topic "Breast Cancer – Prevention and Therapies" will take place at 6.30pm in the center of the stage.
Major advances in breast cancer therapy
There are many reasons why women are less concerned about breast cancer than men. A palpable palpation, examination result, or suspicious lymph node structure arouses fear. Sometimes the cause is a family history or a genetic abnormality.
In the meantime, many patients can breathe easily as breast cancer therapy is making great strides. Previously, women with a "chest node" often had to undergo a mastectomy. Today, after mammography at the hour of breast consultation under local anesthetic, a tissue sample is taken under ultrasound control. In addition, a mammographic examination offered to all women between the ages of 50 and 70 often reveals very early findings that can be treated without any problems. And while in the past, almost every patient received the same 08/15 therapy – the breast was usually removed, then the chemotherapy and final radiation – now each patient is individually adjusted and adjusted.
Early detection is especially important
"However, reliable diagnosis and the possibility of early detection of tumors are especially important," says Claudia Held, medical director of the Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic and Paracelsus Breast Center. "The sooner you are diagnosed with the disease, the better your chances of treatment. For this, we have created enhanced capabilities at the breast center."
