You will feel pressed for time to learn everything and start your treatment as soon as possible. Time is usually on your side. You must work with your team to learn everything about your cancer and treatment options. We created the Breast Cancer School for Patients to quickly teach you to be your own expert in breast cancer. You will make better decisions once you become your own “expert” and best advocate. A few facts about time to treatment: The average time from the date of cancer diagnosis to the day of lumpectomy surgery is about 32 days. The average time to mastectomy surgery is about 40 days. It can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months from cancer diagnosis to complete your final treatments, and up to ten years if you need hormonal therapy. It is a marathon. Conserve your emotional and physical efforts for the challenges ahead. Finding your breast cancer (1 – 3 weeks) Most small breast cancers are found on screening mammography and possibly by ultrasound or maybe a breast MRI. You may have detected your own breast lump and sought further help from your physician. The time to schedule a mammogram, have it performed, return for further breast imaging and then get the results can take days to weeks. Always ask to have your tests and appointments scheduled as soon as possible. Getting a diagnosis: biopsy & results (2 – 14 days) Getting scheduled to have an image-guided breast biopsy by a breast surgeon or radiologist can vary. Most NAPBC accredited Breast Centers work quickly to schedule biopsies for those who might have a breast cancer. Our “Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy“ lesson (here) outlines why needle biopsies are the standard of care. Make sure to ask (demand) that the physician who does your biopsy personally calls you with the results within a day or two. Call for your biopsy pathology results if you think there is a delay. My pathology report: (3 – 14 days) Ask for a copy of your initial biopsy report that will be available in 2-3 days. Ask for a copy of your final pathology report with your receptor results. Our courses on “My Pathology Report” and “My Receptors” offer more details. Surgery or chemotherapy first? Surgery is usually the first treatment for early stage breast cancer. Most patients will not need chemotherapy. If you have Estrogen receptor negative (ER-) or a “HER2-Positive“ tumor, then you will likely need chemotherapy either before or after surgery. There are distinct benefits to “Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy” before surgery. Take our video lessons linked to these topics. Is radiation needed? (4 – 6 weeks) Most patients that have a lumpectomy will need radiation. Whole breast radiation is the most common type and takes 4 to 6 weeks. Only a few patients that have a mastectomy will also need radiation.

Breast Cancer Type and Stage: What You Need to Know
 
08:55
We teach you how "stage" and "type of breast cancer" is determined. Learn how stage can guide treatment decisions. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __________________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Specialists: 1. What type of breast cancer do I have? 2. Can you explain my breast cancer stage and what it means? 3. How much of a threat to my life is my stage of cancer? Breast Cancer Type: Breast cancer “type” is a general reference to the unique features of breast cancer cells. Most important is if the tumor is considered invasive or non-invasive. “Cell type” and “receptors” are also important. These are some of the puzzle pieces that you and your breast specialists must put together to fully understand your breast cancer and how to best treat it. Invasive breast cancer: Invasive breast cancer cells may have the ability to spread beyond the breast to the lymph nodes and other organs of the body. Although this is the type of cancer that can threaten one’s life, 90% of all invasive breast cancers are cured by modern day cancer treatment. “Invasive Breast Cancer“ is covered in great detail with our video lesson (here). The two most common “cell types” of invasive breast cancer are Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) (70%) and Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma (ILC) (20%). They both are treated in almost the same fashion with a combination of surgery, possibly chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and radiation therapy. There are other less common cell types of invasive breast cancer which are not covered in this course. These include papillary, mucinous, colloid, tubular, and phyllodes to name a few. Non-invasive breast cancer: Non-invasive breast cancer is generally defined as DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ). It does not spread to the lymph nodes or beyond. Think of DCIS as a “pre-cancerous” area of the breast. An invasive cancer may evolve from an area of DCIS over time if it is untreated and left in the body to grow. Learn more about “Non-Invasive DCIS“ with our video lesson (here). Breast Cancer Stage: Stage is a way of estimating how life-threatening a cancer is based on the “size” of the tumor, if cancer involves the lymph nodes, and if it has spread to other parts of the body. There are many other important cancer factors beyond stage that determine how a breast cancer should be treated. The term “stage” is often confused with tumor “grade.” Tumor grade is a reference to how abnormal the cancer cells appear under the microscope. Stage of cancer is a reference to how extensive the breast cancer was at the time of diagnosis. Non-Invasive Breast Cancer: (Stage 0) This refers to the presence of DCIS without evidence of invasive breast cancer. The size of the tumor can be small or large. A lumpectomy, followed by radiation to the breast, is the most common treatment approach. A mastectomy may be required to remove a large area of DCIS in some situations. Surgery is the first treatment for Stage 0 breast cancer. Early Stage Invasive Breast Cancer: (Stage I) The invasive cancer tumor is smaller than 2 cm and there is no evidence that cancer has spread to the axillary lymph nodes. Surgery is usually the first treatment. Infrequently, chemotherapy before or after surgery is sometimes needed. (Stage II) The most common scenario is that the tumor is larger than 2 cm but smaller than 5 cm without evidence of spread to the axillary lymph nodes. Another scenario is that the tumor is less than 5 cm in size and there is evidence of cancer in a few axillary lymph nodes. Surgery or chemotherapy are often the first treatment options. Later Stage Breast Cancer: (Stage III) These cancers are generally much larger tumors and in a few situations have grown into the skin or the chest wall. Many have already spread to the axillary lymph nodes. The cancer can grow in a way that involves other tissue around the tumor that makes it difficult to remove surgically. Stage III cancer also includes “inflammatory breast cancer.” There is no evidence of cancer spreading to other body sites yet in Stage III breast cancer. Chemotherapy is usually the first treatment. (Stage IV) Any breast cancer that is found to have spread to other parts of the body (distant metastasis) is Stage IV. The size of the tumor and involvement of the lymph nodes is still important information for treatment decisions. The fact that cancer has spread elsewhere reflects the life-threatening nature of Stage IV breast cancer. Chemotherapy or hormonal therapy is usually the first treatment.

Breast Cancer Pathology Reports: What You Need to Know
 
07:32
We teach you why it is important to get copies of your breast pathology reports and how to understand the information they contain about your cancer. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. Will you give me a copy of my “breast biopsy pathology report?” 2. What do my receptors mean? 3. Will you give me a copy of my “surgical pathology report?” 4. What stage is my breast cancer? 5. May I have a copy of my “Operative Report” and “History and Physical?” 6. Two Types of Pathology Reports: Breast Biopsy Report: The first report you will encounter is your breast biopsy report. This identifies whether or not you have a breast cancer. The initial report only tells you the type of breast cancer and is available 1 to 3 days after a needle biopsy is performed. Over the next week, the receptor results are reported and amended to the initial report. Make sure to get a final copy of your breast biopsy report from your surgeon that includes the receptor information. It is critical information for you to know and keep as a record of your cancer for the future. The “type” of cancer sets the direction of your cancer treatment. Breast cancer is classified into invasive or non-invasive disease and also are given names based on their “cell type.” The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and HER2 receptor results are also incredibly important for you to understand. Ask both your surgeon and medical oncologist if the receptors mean you will ultimately need chemotherapy. The receptor results from your biopsy report can often tell you early on in your journey that you may benefit from chemotherapy, even before surgery. Review our lesson “My Tumor Receptors” to better understand what this means to your care and prognosis. Surgical Pathology Report: The second pathology report is the surgical pathology report. It is available about 3 to 5 days after your surgery. This is a detailed examination of the tumor size, margins, and possibly lymph node involvement. Your final stage of cancer should be included in this report. If it is not, ask your doctor to tell you if you have a Stage O, I, II, III, or IV breast cancer. Ask your medical oncologist what your stage of cancer means for your 5 and 10-year survival. Always ask for a copy of this report when you see your breast surgeon about a week after your breast surgery. Your Surgeon’s “Operative” and “History & Physical” notes: Also ask for a copy of your surgeon’s “Operative note” and “History and Physical” note. These documents provide an excellent summary of your breast cancer care. Keep for your own health records and share this information with new physicians in the future. You will likely not remember all of the details of your care years later. As time passes, these records are difficult to obtain from retired physicians or cumbersome hospital medical record departments.

Breast Cancer Clinical Trials: Should I Participate?
 
09:29
FWe teach you how to locate clinical trials for breast cancer. Participating in clinical trial research can help you and others get better breast cancer care in the future. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Physicians: 1. Do you participate in clinical trials for breast cancer? 2. Would a clinical trial offer me new treatment options? 3. What are the risks of participating in a clinical trial? 4. Where is the closest institution that participates in clinical trials? 5. What is a clinical trial? Any new cancer drug, device, or treatment needs to be studied to make sure it is safe and effective. Every breast cancer drug, such as tamoxifen or chemotherapy, must complete the clinical trial process before being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cancer treatment. New devices for surgery and radiation also go through this complex process. Less than 5% of all patients with cancer are enrolled in clinical trials. Patients with cancer willing to participate in clinical trials are essential for the advancement of cancer care. All treatment options available for patients today are based on the generous participation of others in breast cancer clinical trials. Who may benefit from participating? Newer treatment advances may be available only through clinical trials. Many of these new therapies will not prove to be better than current treatments, but some will. Participating in a clinical trial may give you the opportunity to benefit from these new therapies. Patients who have more advanced stage cancer (inflammatory breast cancer or stage III and IV cancers) usually have more clinical trial options. These cancers are the most worrisome and threatening. Many new treatments are first studied with those who have advanced cancer. It is worth inquiring with your breast specialists about clinical trials if you have advanced stage cancer. Another active area of research involves “triple negative” and “HER2-positive” breast cancer. Many clinical trials are trying to find better therapies for these more aggressive cancers. Clinical trials are also available for early stage breast cancer. The majority women diagnosed with breast cancer have Stage I or II disease. These early stage trials involve surgical techniques, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, and radiation therapy. Sharing your time to advance breast cancer care can be a rewarding experience during a difficult time. What are the possible risks of participating? Clinical trials require a personal commitment of time and effort during a stressful time. Before participating, make sure you have the personal and emotional resources for your own breast cancer treatment journey. “Adverse Events” with new treatments can result in harm. Although there is risk with any cancer treatment, the risks with new treatments are not as well known. Some seek clinical trials for their unique cancer situation. Others are asked to participate in clinical trials by their physicians. Make sure you are willing and able to participate if you are asked. You can always say “No” to participating. Make sure you do not feel pressured into entering a clinical trial by your breast cancer team.

Will I need Chemotherapy for My Breast Cancer?
 
14:48
We teach you how your tumor receptors, lymph nodes, genomic assays, and breast cancer stage indicates if you would benefit from chemotherapy. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ____________________________________ Questions for your Medical Oncologist and Breast Surgeon: 1. Would I benefit from chemotherapy? 2. What factors suggest I will benefit from chemotherapy? 3. What is the risk to my life if I do not undergo chemotherapy? 4. What are the advantages of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” before surgery? 5. Would a “Genomic Assay” help determine if I need chemotherapy? 6. What is chemotherapy? Chemotherapy is the use of certain medications to treat cancer systemically, meaning throughout the whole body. If needed, chemotherapy is usually given after surgery for invasive breast cancer. It is a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (usually pills). Only a minority of breast cancer patients will ever need it. These complex decisions are ones you will make with your medical oncologist. You will make better treatment choices when you are informed about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy before meeting with your medical oncologist. General indications for chemotherapy We outline below some of the more common indications for needing chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy also involves being healthy enough to tolerate the treatment. Deciding who needs chemotherapy and what type of chemotherapy to administer is one of the most difficult decisions made in medicine. Your medical oncologist will guide you. Do my “receptors” suggest I need chemotherapy? Once a breast biopsy is found to be cancerous, the pathologists will automatically run more tests on the same tissue to determine what “receptors” are expressed. Your receptor pattern is a key piece of information that comes early in your breast cancer journey. In about 30% of patients with an invasive breast cancer, the receptor pattern alone can strongly suggest that chemotherapy will be needed regardless of what is found at surgery. The key points regarding receptors are outlined below. Estrogen Receptor Negative (ER -) tumors (20%) do not respond to anti-estrogen oral medications that are essential in treating estrogen receptor positive (ER +) tumors. Quite simply, patients with ER negative tumors will benefit from chemotherapy if they are healthy enough to tolerate it. ER negative tumors are more aggressive cancers, but respond more favorably to chemotherapy than ER positive breast cancers. HER2 Receptor Positive (HER2+) tumors (20%) are very responsive to chemotherapy when paired with new breakthrough drugs that target these tumors, such as Herceptin and Perjeta. The same holds true even if a HER2-positive tumor is also Estrogen Receptor positive (ER+). HER2+ tumors are more aggressive cancers, but we now can treat them more effectively with chemotherapy and new drugs that are “targeted” to destroy HER2-positive cancers. “Triple Negative” (ER-)(PR-)(HER2-) tumors are fast growing tumors that are usually treated with a specific chemotherapy regimen. These tumors are not responsive to hormonal therapy at all, but may be sensitive to chemotherapy. What if cancer is detected in the lymph nodes? If you have “lymph node positive” breast cancer, it is likely you will be offered chemotherapy. Premenopausal women and those with multiple “positive” lymph nodes generally benefit from chemotherapy. If your breast surgeon detects cancer in your lymph nodes before surgery, there may be specific advantages to undergoing “neoadjuvant chemotherapy.” “Inflammatory Breast Cancer” requires chemotherapy If you have been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, the first step is neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery. This type of cancer has a high likelihood of spreading to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body. Starting chemotherapy as soon as possible is essential to treating this aggressive breast cancer. A mastectomy is performed after chemotherapy, followed by radiation to the area of the mastectomy to lessen the chance of cancer growing back in that area. What are the advantages of “neoadjuvant chemotherapy”? Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is when chemotherapy is given before surgery, not afterwards. There are specific advantages to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in appropriately selected patients. How can a genomic “Oncotype DX” test be helpful? Patients who have a small, estrogen receptor positive, HER2 receptor negative tumor and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX genomic assay. This cutting-edge test looks deeper into breast cancer cells to better identify people who may benefit from chemotherapy with ER+, HER2 – breast cancers.

VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Cancer Specialists: 1. What is invasive breast cancer? 2. What type of breast cancer do I have? 3. What is the chance I will die of my breast cancer? 4. What are my receptor results? 5. May I have a copy of my pathology report? 6. Do I qualify for genetic testing? 7. What is invasive breast cancer? Invasive breast cancer is defined by breast cells that grow abnormally fast and have developed the ability to spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. It can take years for breast cells to slowly develop the genetic changes (mutations) to change from a normal cell to an invasive cancer cell. But once they do, some spread more rapidly and others grow very slowly and may not spread at all beyond the breast. Invasive breast cancer can threaten your life. “Non-invasive” breast cancer are cells that also grow abnormally fast, but cannot yet spread beyond the breast to threaten someone’s life. Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) is an example of non-invasive breast cancer and is generally categorized under “breast cancer” by most organizations. It is covered in our “Non-invasive DCIS” lesson and is more of a “pre-cancerous” condition. Important facts if you have an Invasive Breast Cancer: Treatments can cure 90% of all women with breast cancer The majority of all patients are diagnosed at an early stage Surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation are treatment options You have time before choosing a treatment pathway You may qualify for genetic testing Types of invasive breast cancer: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma is the most common (70%) type of invasive breast cancer. It is called “ductal” because the cancer cells originate from the cells lining the milk ducts. There are many other factors beyond “type” of cancer that are important. Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma occurs in less than 20% of patients. It is called “lobular” because the cells originate from the “lobules” of the milk ducts. Lobular cancers are no worse or better than invasive ductal cancers from a survival perspective. There are some unique features of lobular cancers that can affect diagnosis and treatment. Ask you physician how an invasive lobular carcinoma is different from an invasive ductal carcinoma. Other types: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (5%) is a very aggressive cancer. Colloid and Mucinous (3%) are considered less aggressive breast cancers and carry a lower risk to one’s health. There are other less common types of invasive breast cancer that we have not covered. What is the chance I will die of my cancer? Most women just diagnosed with breast cancer have no idea how much of a risk to their life their unique situation poses. Any invasive breast cancer does impart some level of risk to your life. However, this risk is usually less than you would assume. Why are “receptors” important? Receptors are tiny proteins on the surface of the cells that act like “light switches” that can turn on and off cancer cell growth. The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and HER2 receptor results are incredibly important for you to know and understand. Take our lesson on “My Tumor Receptors” to learn the essentials. How do you treat invasive breast cancer? The most common first treatment for early stage invasive breast cancer is surgery, possibly followed by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and then hormonal therapy. Breast cancer treatment is incredibly complex and there can be many different approaches to the same type of breast cancer. There are some situations that are better treated by “neoadjuvant chemotherapy” as a first treatment rather than surgery. The Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to help you to make the best treatment decisions with your breast specialists in your community. You may qualify for genetic testing Invasive breast cancer is known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Most breast cancers are not the result of the BRCA mutation. In fact, it is estimated that the BRCA and similar genetic mutations cause only 10 to 15% of all breast cancers. It is important to ask your physicians if you meet the guidelines for genetic counseling and testing. Take our “BRCA Genetic Testing” lesson to learn more.

How to Recognize Breast Cancer Symptoms
 
03:01
Watch more Client Videos videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/418228-How-to-Recognize-Breast-Cancer-Symptoms Over the course of a woman's lifetime, she may experience breast changes. While many end up being nothing to worry about, it's important to have any changes that you notice checked by a doctor -- just to be on the safe side. Here are the potential breast cancer symptoms to watch out for. Warning This video does not replace actual medical advice. Always consult your doctor with any questions or concerns. Step 1: Do a monthly self-exam Start performing a monthly self-exam as soon as your breasts are fully developed. Checking yourself regularly is important -- you need to know what your breasts feel like normally so you can recognize any changes. Examine yourself several days after your period ends, when your breasts are least likely to be swollen and tender. If you're no longer having periods, choose a day that's easy to remember, such as the first or last day of the month. Keep in mind that it's not uncommon for breasts to feel lumpy due to benign fibrocystic breast disease, cysts, scar tissue, infections, and other causes that have nothing to do with cancer. Tip For instructions on how to do a breast self-exam properly, go to "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/. Step 2: Have lumps checked Know what you're feeling for: a lump that feels different from your breast's normal lumpiness, like discovering a pebble in your oatmeal. Though many lumps are benign, anything that feels new or odd should be checked by your doctor -- even if you've recently had a clean mammogram. Check for lumps in your armpits, too. Tip Cancerous lumps are more likely to be hard, painless, and unmovable. Step 3: Beware of dimpled skin Look for visible changes, like dimpled, puckered, thickened, reddened, or scaly breast skin, or a flattening or indentation on the breast. All are potential breast cancer symptoms that should be evaluated. Step 4: Note nipple changes Recognize the nipple changes that can indicate breast cancer -- pain; redness; scaliness; itching; skin thickening; the nipple turning inward; or discharge other than breast milk. Step 5: Have pain and swelling evaluated See your doctor about swelling in all or part of your breast, or breast pain. Though swelling and soreness are usually no cause for concern, these symptoms can be signs of a rare but aggressive form of the disease known as inflammatory breast cancer. Step 6: Get regular check-ups Have your doctor perform a breast examination at your yearly check-up, and begin annual mammograms at age 40. If you have a family history of the disease, tell your doctor: they may suggest that you start having mammograms at an earlier age. Knowing the signs of breast cancer -- and being proactive about knowing how to recognize them early -- is the best way to protect yourself. Did You Know? In a "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/ survey of more than 2,200 women, 37 percent said they first detected their breast cancer with a self-exam.

Effective Breast Cancer Treatment Options Avoids Surgery Chemo
 
02:51
Effective Breast Cancer Treatment Options Avoids Surgery Chemo "When I was first diagnosed with cancer, it was a surprise, hopeful with today's technology that we could get through it. They said a lumpectomy initially, and I have five other illnesses, so I had to have clearance from those doctors, that took two and half months. In that two and a half months, the tumor doubled in size. When they got their tests finished, they said, "Well, we can't do a lumpectomy anymore, we have to do a mastectomy." So the surgery time went longer. And I said, "I have to go back to the pulmonologist now and do more testing and make sure it's okay for him. And he said "No no, I have the authorization, and it doesn't have a time limit on it." And I became very concerned about wether this doctor was truly concerned with my health and welfare. When my husband got on the internet that night, and he found the Bicher Cancer Center, and got a phone number and address. The next day we called, we made an appointment, and the very day of my surgery is the day I interviewed with Dr. Wolfstein and was accepted as a patient. There's no loss of hair, there's no sickness or nausea or any of the other things that they talk to you about when you're going through massive doses of radiation. I haven't had any of that, and I haven't had any complications with my other disorders. I feel energetic, compared to just before the surgery. I feel fantastic." _________________________________ Useful Links: Breast Cancer Treatment & Side Effects http://www.breastcancer.org/treatment/Apr 29, 2012 -- In recent years, there's been an explosion of life-saving treatment advances against breast cancer, bringing new hope and excitement.

Less Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer: The TAILORx Results

We teach you about the TAILORx clinical trial results and how this information may save many women in the future from chemotherapy. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: *Do I qualify for an Oncotype DX genomic test? *If so, will you order genomic testing for me? *What if I have an "Intermediate" result? *Do you follow the "TAILORx" trial recommendations? *Would you order a genomic test before I see a medical oncologist? What does the TAILORx Clinical Trial results mean to me? On June 3rd, 2018 the results of the largest breast cancer trial reported results that help us better determine who MAY benefit or MAY NOT benefit from chemotherapy in early stage, favorable breast cancers. The results help patients and physicians better interpret the results from the genomic assay, Oncotype DX, which is commonly used in the United States. The trial concludes that most patients with an "Intermediate Recurrence Score" result may avoid chemotherapy. The results were also released for publication by the New England Journal of Medicine. Journal Article Link: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1804710 Video Outlining the TAILORx Clinical Trial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orwPgT0ZP_0&t=14s What is a genomic test? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

OTHER GENOMIC TESTS: Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Test This assay of DCIS or “precancerous” breast cells may help identify some women who may not benefit from radiation therapy after a lumpectomy. Genomic Health Inc. is a leading personalized medicine company. More information is about this test is located (here). MammaPrint This genomic test is used for Stage I and II breast cancers to determine prognosis and survival. This test is now included in national guidelines for some with hormone sensitive breast cancers that are found to have a small amount of cancer in a few lymph nodes. It is also a genomic test for some without “node positive” breast cancer. Agendia is a leader in personalized and molecular cancer diagnostics. More information about MammaPrint is located (here). Endopredict EndoPredict is a 2nd generation genomic breast cancer recurrence test to assess for 10-year risk of cancer recurrence. This test also accounts for tumor size in helping determine if chemotherapy may be needed in early stage, favorable breast cancers. Myriad Genetics is global leader in genetic testing and personalized medicine. More information about Endopredict is located (here). Breast Cancer Index (BCI) This test is designed for women with favorable, early stage breast cancer who have been on hormonal therapy for 4 to 5 years. It can help determine if someone will benefit (or can avoid) five additional years of hormonal therapy, such as tamoxifen or an aromatase inhibitor. This test is not yet approved by the FDA. Medicare and some insurance companies may cover the cost. Biotheranostics is a molecular diagnostics company. More information about BCI is located (here). Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions.

Patient Driven Quality Breast Cancer Care: Be Educated
 
02:04
Patient-Driven Quality breast cancer care means making sure every option is offered. Become an important part of your “treatment team.” VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _____________________________________ Become a breast cancer “expert” Breast cancer care is complicated, but advancing by leaps and bounds every day. This is the high-quality care you hear about on TV and read about online. But unfortunately, there can be barriers between you and quality care in your own medical community. Our innovative Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to begin a “Patient-Driven Quality Movement” in breast cancer care. When you are educated, at diagnosis, by breast specialists, you will know about the key topics and recent advances in breast cancer care. Only then can you make sure you are getting the highest quality care. What is “quality” breast cancer care? Quality breast cancer care simply means achieving the best possible outcomes while minimizing the toxicities of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Your goal is to get only the specific treatments you need to get the best outcome while avoiding over-treatment. Cutting edge advances are an important part of getting the very best breast cancer care. For example, it is quite common for patients to not be offered genetic testing and genomic assays that could have helped their cancer care. Quality care requires dedicated breast physicians, access to cutting edge technologies and an informed patient working with their breast cancer team. Why patients must seek quality cancer care? The best breast cancer care requires a close, long-term relationship with your physicians. Asking great questions about your care engages your doctors in who you are and what your needs are. This is be the best way to work together to make the best breast cancer treatment decisions. Patient-Driven Quality Breast Cancer Care should begin with you learning exactly what you need to know and the questions to engage your breast cancer team. Despite our best efforts, the medical community sometimes doesn’t do enough to guide patients about how to get the very best breast cancer care. The Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to fill this patient information gap and specifically teach you to be your own expert in breast cancer. We encourage other organizations and institutions to do the same. What barriers exist to quality cancer care? Traditionally, breast cancer treatment is a physician-to-patient flow of information and physician directed decision making. One barrier that exists is that new advances in imaging, genetics, genomics, and treatments can take years to filter to and be implemented by breast cancer physicians. Another barrier is that your physicians are human. They can have a bad day where they are pressed for time, running late seeing patients, or distracted by emergencies in the hospital. This can lead your breast specialists to forget to ask you important questions or order a test that could have helped with your care. This is why patient-driven care can make sure everything is on the table when you make key treatment decisions for your breast cancer. You should know exactly what is going on and what questions to ask. The Breast Cancer School for Patients feels it should be our job as breast cancer specialists to teach you to be your own advocate. What is the solution? The Breast Cancer School for Patients (www.breastcancercourse.org) has organized the important topics and treatment choices you will face. We give you short video lessons about each cancer treatment topic, and provide you the essential course notes and questions to ask your doctors in their language. We also give you doctor selected links and references that lead you to the best websites. Our innovative approach easily teaches you to make the best treatment decisions. Learn as little or as much as you desire about any breast cancer subject on our educational website.

Mastectomy Breast Reconstructions Options:
 
15:37
We teach you about mastectomy reconstruction options. While treating your cancer comes first, a multidisciplinary team approach results in better cosmetic and cancer outcomes. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Plastic Surgeon: 1. Am I a good candidate for breast reconstruction? 2. What type of reconstruction do you recommend? 3. Am I a candidate for a nipple-sparing or skin-sparing mastectomy? 4. What are the complications and disadvantages of reconstruction? 5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of a bilateral mastectomy? What is Breast Reconstruction? Breast reconstruction is commonly performed after a mastectomy. The goal is to re-create the shape of the breast with one or multiple surgeries by a plastic-reconstructive surgeon. Today, the cosmetic results are leaps and bounds beyond where they were just a decade ago. With that said, breast reconstruction is far more complex and carries much higher complication risks than an elective breast augmentation. About half of women who have a mastectomy in the United States will undergo breast reconstruction. A mastectomy without reconstruction is also a surgical choice. One can wear a breast prosthesis and avoid the more extensive surgeries and risks of complications with a reconstruction. The decision to have breast reconstruction is complicated and personal. It is important to realize that everyone has different goals, different personal situations, and their own reasons as to how they manage their unique breast cancer situation. Treating your breast cancer comes first. There are many complex factors your breast cancer surgeon must consider about your reconstruction options. Most of the time your reconstructive options are not affected by your cancer treatment. But if you do have a complex breast cancer situation, ask your surgeon to present your dilemma to a multidisciplinary conference for further input from other surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists. Balancing a great cancer outcome with a good cosmetic outcome sometimes requires intensive discussions amongst your breast surgeon’s team of breast cancer specialists. A surgical “Team Approach” is best. Your breast surgeon will likely guide you to a plastic-reconstructive surgeon he or she works with regularly. They will work as a “team” to plan the best surgical approach to your cancer and likely work together the day of your mastectomy to begin your reconstruction. Subsequently, the plastic surgeon works with you in planning further staged reconstruction procedures. What are your Breast Surgeon’s “Mastectomy Options”? A skin-sparing mastectomy preserves the skin of the breast but not the nipple or areola. Preserving the normal “skin envelope” in the shape of your breast leads to better cosmetic results. A nipple-sparing mastectomy preserves all the skin of the breast including the nipple and areola. If you have an early stage breast cancer located away from the nipple you may be a candidate for this approach. Nipple-sparing mastectomies generally lead to the best cosmetic results. Women with very large breasts may not be appropriate for a nipple-sparing technique. A traditional mastectomy saves only enough skin to cover the chest wall. Sometimes this is required to effectively treat the cancer. Reconstruction can still be performed in this setting, but the cosmetic results may not be as successful as nipple-sparing or skin-sparing approaches. What are your Plastic Surgeon’s “Breast Reconstruction Options”? Two-stage implant reconstruction involves implantation of a “tissue expander” implant at the time of your mastectomy to help mold and stretch the skin to the desired size and shape. This implant will be expanded one “fill” at a time at office visits until the desired result is achieved. At a second operation, the plastic surgeon will remove the expander and place a permanent implant filled with “saline” or “silicone.” This the most common approach to breast reconstruction today. One-stage implant reconstruction occurs with well-selected patients that can undergo placement of the “final implant” during the mastectomy surgery. This approach is not nearly as common as the two-stage approach outlined above. Tissue flap reconstruction is used in about 10% of all breast reconstructions in the United States. The benefit is that it uses a segment of your own tissue from your abdominal area or your back to fill the space needed to reconstruct the breast. It is a much more complicated and involved surgery but the results seldom require surgical revisions in the future. Types of tissue flaps include DIEP flaps, TRAM flaps, and latissimus flaps.

Genetics May Guide Treatment for Women at High Risk for Breast Cancer
 
00:58
Tamoxifen and raloxifene are effective at preventing breast cancer in women at high risk for the disease. But they don't work for everyone, and can have dangerous side effects. A new study led by physicians at Allegheny General Hospital found that a genetic test can predict which women will be helped by tamoxifen or raloxifene. The research is an important step forward in fully individualized cancer care, said D. Lawrence Wickerham, MD, Director, Division of Cancer Genetics at AGH, in an interview with WPXI-TV.

Erectile Dysfunction from Prostate Cancer Treatment | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
05:32
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about erectile dysfunction that occurs after prostate cancer treatment. He covers the risk of side effects and practical information about how to weigh the risks and benefits of treatment. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:26 Each treatment has a different risk of impotence. Focal treatment tends to have the least erectile side effects, radiation having an intermediate risk of side effects, and radical prostatectomy having the highest risk of impotence after treatment 1:03 The onset of erectile dysfunction varies by treatment. Radical prostatectomy causes immediate erectile dysfunction. Men typically recover over a period of time. Radiation on the other hand typically does not have an immediate effect on erectile function, but rather, erectile function after radiation will tend to worsen as time goes on. This distinction is important because the immediate erectile dysfunction after surgery can cause atrophy and scarring of the penis from a lack of use. 2:10 Erectile dysfunction can have serious psychological side effects on men. When erectile dysfunction occurs, men can lose interest in pursuing intercourse, which in turn can worsen the problem. This reality must be taken into consideration as treatment is being selected. Men still have sensation even if the erectile function is reduced. But sexual activity after treatment is different. Additionally, after any form of prostate treatment, men will have dry orgasms, which will also change the sensation of sexual activity. Many men are not informed of this fact. 4:05 Practitioners often cite favorable statistics when trying to convince men to choose one treatment over another. The reality is that most of these statistics have a different definition than one might expect. Most studies that are quoted define impotence as the inability to get an erection even when taking a drug like Viagra, also they define potency as the ability to get a “serviceable erection.” So erectile function and people’s daily lives are affected more than what the quoted statistics might suggest. You may not be told in your consultation that you will have to take Viagra-like drugs and that the quality of your erections will be reduced. 5:50 Age has a notable effect on erectile function after prostate cancer treatment. Men who are younger tend to recover better. But as men get older, they are more likely to experience worse side effects. Also, men with preexisting erectile issues will likely have much worse outcomes depending on the treatment selected.

Breast Cancer Surgery: Start with your Breast Surgeon

Learn the key breast cancer topics you will cover with your breast surgeon. Learn about breast cancer surgery and cutting-edge care. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _____________________________ Your breast surgeon guides your cancer care. This consultation is the start of your breast cancer treatment journey. Your breast surgeon sets the initial direction your cancer care. It is essential to be well prepared for this meeting. The issues discussed should be more about your overall cancer care rather than about a surgical procedure. You must be engaged with the key topics outlined in our “Breast Surgery Course.” We created the Breast Cancer School for Patients to prepare you to ask for the very best breast cancer care in your community. Learn everything about your breast cancer. Your breast surgeon is the first person to teach you about your unique breast cancer. You should ask about the threat to your life (usually less than you think) and the treatment options ahead. When you are well informed, you will make better treatment decisions with your breast cancer specialists. Your breast surgeon is your initial source for this information. Watch our video lessons and read the attached information to learn what you need to know about your breast cancer. Use our “Questions” in each lesson to engage your breast cancer specialists in their language to get the information you need to know. Discuss your surgical options. Breast surgeons have a broad knowledge base about chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and radiation therapy. They will formulate the initial direction of your cancer treatment plan. Breast cancer surgery is just one component of the comprehensive treatment plan they will design for you. Surgery is usually the first treatment step in early stage breast cancer. You will discuss the surgical options that are appropriate for your situation. The decision to have a “lumpectomy” or a “mastectomy” requires input from your breast surgeon and a discussion about your personal desires. Make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision. You have time to think about your options and can return to discuss them again with your breast surgeon when needed. Sometimes chemotherapy is the best first step in treating a breast cancer. In this situation, you will have months to contemplate your surgical options while undergoing chemotherapy before surgery. In general, time is usually on your side in making surgical decisions. Does your surgeon work with a “Multidisciplinary Team?” Ask your breast surgeon if he or she works with an accredited breast center team. If your breast surgeon presents your cancer situation to a team of physicians at a “Multidisciplinary Breast Conference” you may benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Some patients have very complicated cancer situations that require this “team approach” to determine a tailored, personalized solution. These brainstorming sessions focusing on you can expand your treatment options and improve your outcome. Many smaller and rural communities do not yet have breast centers, but you can still receive excellent care if there is not one near your home. If there is a breast center in your community and your breast surgeon does not participate, it is important to ask them, “Why do you not participate?” Breast cancer physicians that work as a team may offer you distinct benefits. What “cutting edge” treatment options should I ask about? Recent advancements in breast cancer care are sometimes overlooked. The overarching goal of cutting edge research is to improve outcomes and lessen side effects of treating cancer. You must learn about these advances and specifically ask your breast surgeon if they are appropriate for your breast cancer situation. Our short video lessons in this “Breast Surgery Course” will teach you how to bring these options into your discussions. Take our lessons on: Breast MRI Axillary ultrasound Neoadjuvant chemotherapy Oncoplastic surgery Genetic and Genomic testing Brachytherapy radiation There are many options that can improve outcomes. Ask your doctor if you qualify for any of these advances. By doing so, you and your breast surgeon will develop a treatment plan that’s best for you. Register for our newsletter and “Cutting-Edge” questions Sign-up for our video-based breast health updates. Once registered, we’ll immediately email you our complete list of “Cutting Edge” questions for your breast surgeon, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist. We help you get quality breast cancer care in your community.

Triple Negative Breast Cancer: What you need to know
 
10:06
We teach you why Triple Negative Breast Cancer is threatening. Learn how it is treated, and it's link to the BRCA genetic mutation. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. What exactly is triple negative breast cancer? 2. Will I need Chemotherapy? 3. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 4. Isn’t Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 5. Do I qualify for BRCA genetic testing? 6. Should I consider a Clinical Trial? 7. What is “Triple Negative” breast cancer? “Triple Negative” breast cancers are fast growing tumors that more frequently spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Because of this, they are a bigger threat to your life than most other types of cancers of similar size with a different receptor pattern. These cancers are called “triple negative” because the three most important breast cancer “receptors” on the surface of the cells are not present (negative). When present, these receptors are used as targets to attack the cancer with medications. When absent, the main medical therapy is chemotherapy. Your Breast Surgeon will know your “receptor pattern” within days after your initial breast biopsy. These results are often not communicated to you early on in your decision process. Although only 15% of breast cancers are “triple negative,” it is imperative that you specifically ask your surgeon immediately, and well before surgery, “What are my receptor results?” “Triple Negative” is treated with Chemotherapy These cancers are often sensitive to chemotherapy and it is offered to almost everyone healthy enough to tolerate it. Chemotherapy is obviously a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (pills). But unfortunately, since triple negative cancers do not have “Estrogen receptors” (ER negative), hormonal therapy is not helpful at all. The time to cure triple negative cancer is now, not when it recurs later. Chemotherapy and surgery is the standard for treating triple negative breast cancer. Ask about the benefits of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” What is often overlooked are the benefits of offering neoadjuvant chemotherapy for patients with triple negative, “Early-Stage” (I & II) breast cancer. There may be distinct advantages (listed below) to having chemotherapy before surgery, not after surgery if you have a triple negative tumor. The decision to consider neoadjuvant chemotherapy always begins with your breast surgeon. You must address this “cutting edge” treatment option well before surgery to benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Do not be afraid to ask. This is a very important question. The Potential Benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo: *Begin life-saving chemotherapy earlier *Reduce the need for a mastectomy *Improve cosmetic outcomes with a lumpectomy *Reduce the need for an “Axillary Dissection” *Allows more time for BRCA genetic testing *More time to think about “lumpectomy vs. mastectomy” *Shows your cancer team if the chemo is working *Can sometimes eliminate all cancer cells before surgery *May reduce the need for radiation after a mastectomy Ask for BRCA Genetic Testing Triple negative breast cancers can be associated with inherited genetic mutations. Any woman who has ever been diagnosed with a triple negative breast cancer at age 60 or younger is at a high risk for carrying the BRCA mutation. If you also have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer you are at an even higher risk. Unfortunately, genetic testing is often not offered for triple negative breast cancer patients. It is important to ask for BRCA Genetic Testing in this situation. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. African Americans are a higher risk for Triple Negative African American and women of West African descent are at a higher risk of developing triple negative breast cancers than most other ethnic groups.

"Nurse Navigators" help guide breast cancer patients
 
02:41
Situated in the basement of the Oakdale Medical building is North Memorial's Hope Chest Breast Center "We do want to make the patient experience a remarkable experience," said Kathy Olson, the supervisor of the breast center. The center provides screening, education, treatment -- and hope -- under one roof. "It provides a very nice service for [the patients], to have this as their, more or less, one--stop for them in their breast care," Olson added. One of those patients is Andrea McClelland, who was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 18. "It was a real simple day," McClelland recalled. "I made an appointment with a nurse practitioner to have some lumps checked out in my left breast because they were becoming very painful. That appointment led to a mammogram, followed by a biopsy and the eventual diagnosis. "I'm young. I'm in my 40s, I'm healthy, there's no cancer in my family, I don't drink, I don't smoke, so that was the absolute last thing on my mind, was cancer," McClelland admitted. Yet, she admits that she did not perform the recommended monthly self examinations. The Hope Chest Breast Center also recommends that women age 40 and older get an annual mammogram. However, women with a family history of breast cancer should get checked out sooner. "And unfortunately my cancer was graded at a stage 3," McClelland said. "Had I been a little more aware, it would've made a world of difference." However, one person who's made a world of difference in Andrea's life is Dianne Solarz--Ferley, North Memorial's so--called "nurse navigator." "I just feel that there's a need for the nurse to be as informative and as kind and compassionate as possible because these are people that you're dealing with," said Solarz-Ferley. As a nurse navigator, Solarz-Ferley guides breast cancer patients through every step of the journey, providing not only information, but compassion and support. "I always try to put myself in their shoes," said Solarz-Ferley, a registered nurse. "I like to treat people the way I would like to be treated." It has helped put Andrea's mind at ease during what she calls "a big hiccup" in her journey. "It's amazing," McClelland said of having a nurse navigator. "Like having a fairy godmother, and just knowing she's there. It's made all the difference in the world."
