Einstein Answers: Frequent Questions About Breast Cancer

By on 10/03/2019

Breast cancer is the most common cancer except skin cancer among U.S. women, with 245,000 new cases diagnosed each year. But it kills far fewer women than lung cancer. In fact, about 90% of women survive at least five years after a breast cancer diagnosis and 83% live at least 10 years.

Early detection and treatment is the key to these high survival rates. Regular mammograms for older women allow breast cancers to be found in their early stages, when they are easier to cure.

In these videos, Lisa Jablon, MD, a breast surgeon and Director of Breast Health at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, talks about breast cancer risk, screening and treatment.
