Make This Breast Cancer Awareness Month About More Than Awareness with Accarent Health

Accarent and Keck Medicine of USC partner to bring access to expanded breast cancer bundled procedures

Baltimore, MD, Oct. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Every October pink ribbons appear everywhere as the impact of breast cancer is brought to the forefront of national conversation. Awareness and screening are essential, but what comes next for those facing a breast cancer diagnosis? A new cancer diagnosis can be intimidating and overwhelming. For those with a suspicion of cancer, Accarent’s Cancer Diagnosis Confirmation and Recommended Treatment Plan can be very beneficial. With this bundle, the patient collaborates with a multi-disciplinary team at a top cancer center to address their unique needs and design a custom treatment plan. Then the patient can take the plan home to their local oncologist or choose to remain with the Accarent center of excellence for treatment.

Most breast cancer patients require surgical intervention. Over 70% of patients will undergo some type of surgery to treat their breast cancer. There are different types of breast surgery, and they may be done for different reasons, depending on the situation. Surgery may be done to remove as much of the cancer as possible, explore whether the cancer has spread, or restore the appearance of the breast. In some cases, surgery is the only treatment required. It may also be combined with chemotherapy or radiation as part of an overall treatment plan.

Through our expanded partnership with Keck Medicine of USC, Accarent Health is able to provide access to partial, simple and radical mastectomy, lumpectomy, lymphadenectomy, breast reconstruction and revision surgeries. The Keck USC Breast Center team offers comprehensive and compassionate care based on the latest scientific advancements, and support from a dedicated team of expert physicians, mental health professionals, rehabilitation specialists, social workers, dietitians, and genetic counselors.
