Diverse Approach Helping Ohio State Breast Cancer Patients Reduce Reoccurrence Risk

Ohio State’s patient-tailored treatments are helping breast cancer survivors reduce the risk of reoccurrence.

While there are many factors that can influence the chances of breast cancer reoccurrence – including genomics, tumor characteristics and treatment responses – research shows that the risk can often be reduced.

With that goal in mind, OSUCCC – James breast cancer specialists work with patients to create personalized plans, focusing on treatments and lifestyle changes tailored to each unique situation.

“Our understanding of tumor biology has increased several fold, so we are now in a better position to identify patients at risk and treat them appropriately,” Sagar Sardesai, MBBS, says. “This starts with screening and prevention. I would encourage women to talk to their doctors about the right screening program – there is no such thing as a routine breast cancer screening.”
