The Philippines has the highest breast cancer incident rate in Asia and the disease is still among the leading cause of cancer among women. Medical experts stress that breast cancer is a preventable and curable disease and it worth noting that the number of cancer survivors is steadily increasing.
Asian Breast Center at Centuria Medical Makati offers not only innovative breast cancer therapies but also consultation and various aids to prevent breast cancer.
In breast conserving therapy, the specialist radiates the breast where the cancer is. The patient will receive a total of 33 treatments that will be given once for five days. This normally takes six and a half weeks. A booster may be given to the patient after the treatment.
Asian Breast Center will also offer the latest breast cancer therapy for early stages. One of these is the Intraoperative Radiation Therapy, an advanced breast cancer treatment for stage 0 to 1. Unlike other radiation therapies that radiates the whole breast, IORT targets mainly the specific area where the cancer is.
The soon-to-open Asian Breast Center will be the country’s first freestanding ambulatory cancer care unit for profit-for-charity, dedicated to the comprehensive treatment and management of breast diseases.
There are several types of breast cancer. Among the common types are ductal carcinoma in situ, the most common type of noninvasive breast cancer , where cancer has not spread yet usually has a very high cure rate; the invasive ductal carcinoma, which starts in a duct of the breast and grows into the surrounding tissue; the invasive lobular carcinoma, which starts in the glands of the breast that produce milk; and the inflammatory breast cancer, which makes the skin of the breast appear red and feel warm (giving it the appearance of an infection).
Asian Breast Center will soon open its doors at the Centuria Medical Makati, a one-stop, outpatient medical-IT facility at Century City in Makati. Centuria will house more than 700 clinics. It provides an efficient clinic environment for doctors and equally hassles-free patient-centered services to all its guests and patients.
