Breast Cancer

Being committed to the duty of Cancer prevention, The Center offers a number of selected educational video materials to aid the concerned to understand more about Oncology.
Education can help ease the anxiety of the unknown.
It can help debunk the many myths people are told by well-meaning friends and family.
Moreover, we feel strongly that an educated patient is better able to advocate for themselves.
They are better prepared to care for themselves at home, manage side effects, and safely go through treatment.
