Podcast #15: Breast Cancer Basics with Dr. William Burak Jr

Breast surgical oncologist, Dr. William Burak Jr, joins us in today’s episode to help us understand more about breast cancer and surgery. We talk about the different kinds of breast cancer, the treatment options and their risk reduction, surgery expectations, and healing. He also discusses with us the reasoning for a sentinel node biopsy, what lymphodema is, and what we should know about breast density. We’re able to make more informed decisions when we better understand a topic; so Dr. Burak has graciously taken the time to break down this science for us in efforts to inform and enlighten.
