Breast cancer claims the lives of thousands of women in the United States each year. Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. Some women are at higher risk for breast cancer than others because of their personal or family medical history or because of certain changes in their genes.
Dr. Meghan Milburn, the Medical Director of the Breast Center at the Kaufman Cancer Center at UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, will discuss the latest research and screening recommendations and treatment options for breast cancer.
