Suburban Surgical Associates/Suburban Metabolic Institute is your general surgeon in LaGrange, Elmhurst, and Berwyn, IL. Our physicians specialize in the comprehensive surgical treatment of breast cancer.
According to the CDC, breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. It is estimated that 1 out of every 8 women will have a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives. The risk increases as you age, and a family history of cancer may increase your chances, but ultimately cancer doesn't care who you are related to. Breast cancer can develop in anyone, even in some men though it is rare.
A breast cancer diagnosis is obviously life-changing, but the treatments available today are also life-saving. Our dedicated physicians treat breast cancer cases with a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. Every recommendation and treatment plan is unique to the patient. We treat cancer while we treat you with care and compassion.
Scheduling a screening could save your life
It's important to do self-exams at home to notice any changes in your breasts or tissue, but remember that breast cancer is often asymptomatic. You should see a doctor for screening once a year. You may feel anxious about a screening appointment and that is normal, whether you have a family history of cancer or not. Just the thought of cancer can be overwhelming and very scary, but early detection is still the best chance we have to provide effective treatment. Encourage the rest of your family to get on a screening schedule and come see us for a screening appointment.
