Women and Cancer topic of Thursday’s CTRC free lecture
SAN ANTONIO (September 10, 2013) – The quest continues for ways to find and treat ovarian cancer early. Meanwhile, screening and treatment have greatly improved the prognosis for many breast cancer patients, but debate continues over how frequently women should get mammograms.
This Thursday night, the Cancer Therapy & Research Center features two experts to discuss and answer questions about these topics at its free lecture on Women & Cancer.
Pamela Otto, M.D., interim chair of the Department of Radiology in the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center, will discuss screening, early detection, and what to expect when getting a breast imaging evaluation. Kevin Hall, M.D., chief of gynecology/oncology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, will provide an update on screening and treatment of gynecologic cancers.
The lecture, which is open to the public and has a question-and-answer session, will be Thursday, Sept. 12 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the fourth floor of the CTRC’s Grossman Building, 7979 Wurzbach Rd., San Antonio.
