Breast Cancer Awareness – a Radiation Oncologist Answers Your Common Questions

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, founded in 1985 to increase awareness and fund research for the most common type of cancer in women.

According to the World Cancer Research Fund, this year, 281,550 American women and 2,650 American men will learn they have breast cancer. Another 49,290 women will learn they have noninvasive breast cancer.

But breast cancer can often be cured: Approximately 83% of all patients with breast cancer live at least 10 years after their diagnosis.

To learn more, watch Assistant Professor Oluwadamilola T. Oladeru, MD, MA, MBA discuss treatment options and answer common questions about breast cancer in the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s “Ask a Radiation Oncologist” question and answer session.
