Breast Cancer Education Class at Sharp in San Diego

Breast Cancer Education Class at Sharp in San Diego

by Kathleen Lisson


Dr. Casteel explains the process of treating breast cancer at Sharp in San Diego

I attended a free breast cancer education class at Sharp Outpatient Pavilion in San Diego this week. Surgeon Dr. Christina Casteel, medical oncologist Dr. Jennifer Fisher, radiation oncologist Dr. Geoffrey Weinstein and pathologist Dr. Christopher Wixom explained the treatment process for breast cancer, including diagnosis, chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and hormone therapy. I left the event with a better understanding of the terminology used in a medical record and the reasons for the order of treatments for breast cancer. I would recommend this class for anyone wanting to learn more about a diagnosis of breast cancer and the current treatment options.
