In an article by Alec Rosenburg at the UC Newsroom, Dr. Esserman talked about 5 important things women needed to know about breast cancer:

  1. Breast cancer isn’t one disease
  2. Not all breast cancer is life threatening
  3. Not everyone needs the same approach to screening
  4. Consider participating in a clinical trial
  5. Precision medicine shows promise

Dr. Esserman also talks about the Wisdom Study which aims to determine whether annual screenings or a more personalized approach to screening is most effective in fighting breast cancer.
