Sierra Nevada Cancer Center Talks Breast Cancer
Care, Prevention, Risk Factors
  • Thanks to remarkable improvements in cancer
    detection, care and research, millions of women
    are surviving breast cancer today.
  • Our last post talked about treatment options and
    detection methods. This time, were talking about
    the role of personal care when diagnosed with
    breast cancer, as well as preventive measures and
    risk factors.

Personal Care
  • The idea of undergoing any cancer treatment can
    be difficult, which is why Dr. Jorge Perez and
    his team strive to offer immediate Advanced
    Cancer Care to patients and their families.
  • I work personally with patients and their
    families and collaborate closely on disease
    management, said Dr. Perez. I want all of my
    patients to beat their cancer, and I will do
    everything that I can to help them restore their
  • The team prides itself on its personal approach,
    and SNCC patients become part of our extended
    family of cancer warriors and survivors.

  • We are here to help, said Dr. Perez. While you
    are in our care, we want you to feel like you
    have a friend and a resource that can help
    connect you with information, support, ideas or
    just an ear to listen.
  • And the best feedback we can hear is that our
    patients felt supported throughout the process.
  • "I feel very blessed that the Sierra Nevada
    Cancer Center has been helping me fight my
    spreading breast cancer, said SNCC patient and
    South Lake Tahoe resident Kathy B. Dr. Perez and
    his staff are very supportive, inspirational,
    professional and secure. An illness like mine
    makes life difficult every day, but being able to
    communicate and stay focused on my medications
    helps me stay strong and encouraged to continue
    with all my treatments. Thank you with all my
    heart and soul."

Preventive Measures
  • Treatment and early detection is what has given
    the millions of breast cancer survivors their
    best chance at beating cancer.
  • To reduce your risk of breast cancer
  • Increase your level of physical activity
  • Maintain a healthy weight and diet
  • Decrease the consumption of alcohol
  • Talk with your doctor about ways to avoid
    Combined Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Risk Factors
  • Many factors contribute to the risk of developing
    breast cancer gender, age, family history and
    race among them.
  • Breast cancer occurs nearly 100 times more often
    in women than in men. Men can also be diagnosed
    with breast cancer, but they have a far greater
    risk developing Prostate Cancer.
  • Two out of three women with invasive cancer are
    diagnosed after age 55.
  • If your mother, sister, father or child has been
    diagnosed with breast cancer, the risk of you
    developing breast cancer increases, especially if
    your relative was diagnosed before the age of 50.
  • It is unknown as to why, but breast cancer is
    more common in Caucasian women.

  • Keep in mind You only have control over some
    aspects of your risk factors. Sierra Nevada
    Cancer is here to help if you are diagnosed, with
    facilities and treatments that will encourage
    healing in your battle against cancer.
