Resources for breast cancer patients in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO —
SAN ANTONIO - More than half of breast cancer patients in San Antonio seek help from the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The facility is a premier cancer research and treatment facility. Patients are cared for by teams of physicians, including surgeons, oncologists and radiologists - all in the same building, working together.
We stopped by the center recently to meet with Dr. Virginia Kaklamani about the resources available to patients.
"Usually, what we recommend is we start screening at the age of 40, with a mammogram every year or two until you are 50," she says. "After that, every year."
The center also has a partnership with the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. It's another way for the teams to share resources and help improve treatment.
