COURSES AND SEMINARS

Breast cancer

Description

In recent years, the presence in breast oncology clinics of women in their 20s and 30s has become almost routine, to an extent that demands special focus on issues relating to their diagnosis and management.
Research suggests that most young women world wide know nothing about the lifestyle habits that can influence breast cancer risk. Alcohol, lack of exercise or being overweight are important among a list of risk factors that will be discussed in this programme.
In this two-day course for clinicians, international experts will present up-to-theminute approaches in a spectrum of topics including
- Imaging the young breast
- Surgery, including SNB and breast reconstruction
- Systemic treatment - new drugs, new applications
- Developments in radiotherapy
- Fertility
- Breast cancer and pregnancy
- Management of high risk families
- Nutrition and lifstyle

A complete session devoted to psychology and breast cancer will explore
- The psychological impact on the patient and those close to her
- Living with breast cancer - the patient's perspective
- Managing bad news - insights from the doctor and the patient

Interaction with faculty is positively encouraged and there will be ample time allocated to discussion.
