Breast Cancer Recurrence Risk

June 9, 2021

Brian wojciechowski md final 6340

Brian Wojciechowski, M.D., practices medical oncology in Delaware County, Pennsylvania at Riddle, Taylor, and Crozer hospitals and also serves as's medical adviser. A native of South Philadelphia, he trained at Temple University School of Medicine and Lankenau Medical Center. Dr. Wojciechowski is a sought-after speaker on the topics of medical ethics and the biology of cancer.

One of the goals of treatment for DCIS and early-stage breast cancer — which is stage I, II, or stage III cancer — is to stop the cancer from coming back, called recurrence by doctors. Dr. Wojciechowski joined us to talk about recurrence risk and how it's estimated.

Listen to the episode to hear Dr. Wojciechowski discuss:

  • the factors used to determine each breast cancer's risk of recurrence
  • the steps a person can take to help keep the risk of recurrence as low as it can be
  • how tests called tumor genomic assays can help estimate the risk of recurrence
