With our system of breast cancer care comprised of mammography screening, treatment and support, Dr. Rai Memorial Medical Centre acts proactively to help prevent you from the risk of breast cancer and combat the disease for those who already have been diagnosed.
Our Breast Care Program provides you with personal encouragement and quality medical care so you make informed choices about your breast cancer treatment. Our Breast Care Coordinator will provide services tailored to your individual needs.
When you or a loved one are diagnosed with breast cancer, it is important to be aware of every treatment option available for the most complete care, which may include clinical trials-research studies designed to evaluate new breast cancer treatment and testing options.
These studies are the result of a long and deliberate cancer research process that often takes years. Clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of new or modified treatments using new drugs, unique approaches to surgery or radiation therapy, varied combinations of treatments, or other methods.
