What Is Breast Cancer?
Although most breast cancers occur in women, men can get breast cancer as well. The majority of breast cancers are found in the lining of the breast milk duct. However, breast cancer can start in the mammary gland and other tissues in the breast.
Breast cancer is a disease that starts when cells in the breast grow out of control. In many cases, these cells will form a tumor that feels like a lump. If the tumor is found to be cancerous, or malignant, its cells may grow into nearby tissues and spread to distant areas of the body.
Our Breast Cancer Treatment Approach
At RRCC, we specialize in delivering comprehensive cancer care in a timely manner. Dr. Karp and the rest of the RRCC team utilize state-of-the-art technologies to create individualized, local radiation therapy treatment plans. Our radiation oncology treatment facility houses a CT scanner and a leading treatment planning software, which are critical to effective and accurate radiation therapy delivery.
After handling all of your essential paperwork and customizing a treatment plan to suit your unique needs, we use image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) to precisely deliver radiation to the tumor. This advanced radiation therapy helps target the tumor directly while doing as little damage to healthy tissue as possible to minimize negative side effects.
