Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester presents long-term effects of radiation

By on March 20, 2017

The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester will present Long-Term Effects of Radiation on Wednesday, March 29 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Richmond Memorial Library, Batavia. Dr. Kevin J. Mudd of UR Medicine – Wilmot Cancer Institute will be the guest speaker.

Radiation treatment for breast cancer is known to reduce recurrence and increase survival of the disease. But are there risks associated with this form of treatment? What long-term effects may be attributed to radiation therapy? Do the therapeutic benefits outweigh the potential risks? Are there ways to prevent or minimize long-term effects? What should a patient be aware of in the weeks, months and years following radiation treatment? This evening educational seminar will discuss these and other questions.

Community co-sponsors for this event include Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer (New York State 61st Senate District), Assemblyman Stephen Hawley (New York State Assembly District 139), and UR Medicine – Wilmot Cancer Institute. This event is free and open to the public. Registration for the event is not required.
