Breast cancer is no laughing matter…that’s for sure nor are other cancers. Today I had a teaching session with my medical students here and our team session was on breast cancer with a few oncologists. It was a very interesting session and we all learned a lot. It is amazing how collaborative the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of a patient with cancer is…a large multi disciplinary team even here in Singapore where medical care is done somewhat on the cheap. It is comforting to know that a lot of basic science and clinical science research is currently being done…including the incorporation of PARP inhibitors in the treatment regimen of patients who have BRACA-1 mutations. Interesting indeed…do ask me questions if you have any on the subject…I am no expert but i do have some basic understanding!
