There’s a potentially new treatment out there for the most common cancer among women: breast cancer.
Breast cancer specialist Dr. Brigid Killelea with Hartford HealthCare Saint Vincent’s Medical Center joins us to explain.
The trial looked at how effective the CDK4/6 inhibitor is on people with early stage cancer; CDK4/6 is usually used for treating people with metastatic or advanced stage cancer.
Dr. Killelea says that it is safe for all patients to go out and get a mammogram amid the pandemic. She recommends women aged 40 and up who are at least at average risk for breast cancer to get a mammogram once a year.
