The Breast Biopsy Reveals Cancer. Now What?

Mar 13, 2019

Last week on Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine, our host shared a very personal story about breast cancer screenings and early detection and fortunately for Dr. Greg and his wife Vanessa Oliver the prognosis was good.  But what happens if the biopsy comes back and a cancer is detected?  What happens then?  We examine that aspect of breast cancer in this week’s segment.

Dr. Pat McGrath is a professor of surgery at UK HealthCare.  He recently spoke with Dr. Greg about not only potential prevention but also the diagnosis and treatment of early and advanced breast cancers.
