Radiation for Breast Cancer
Dr. Victor Guardiola, Medical Oncologist at Miami Cancer Institute, explains radiation treatment is a must in a patient that has preserved her breast and has a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer, like the case of Clara Pablo, founder of TeTocaTocarte. "There was no advantage of doing a mastectomy, she chose wisely and decided to do breast conserving technique on the affected breast and not doing anything on the contralateral breast," he says.
As a patient Clara Pablo says she also chose the lumpectomy because her BRACA came back negative. "Had my BRACA came back positive that would have been a huge factor and I would have gotten a double mastectomy."
