SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Breast AdvocateŽ, a new leader in breast cancer treatment education,
This first-of-its-kind shared decision-making tool, co-created by breast cancer specialists and patient advocates, provides anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis, or at risk of developing breast cancer, a much needed voice in the decisions surrounding their surgery.
"Breast Advocate is an app we've been working on for some time. I'm very proud and excited to say it will fill huge gaps in breast cancer education and support," says Dr. Minas Chrysopoulo, breast reconstruction surgeon and app creator.
"Should you have a lumpectomy or mastectomy? Should you have prophylactic surgery? Should you go flat or have breast reconstruction? If you want reconstruction, what type is best for you? Should you have gene testing? Breast Advocate can help anyone impacted by breast cancer with these questions and much more. It will empower users with the knowledge needed to fully discuss their treatment plan with their medical team and ensure they make the best decisions for them."
The app will provide users free personalized treatment information and recommendations on all types of breast cancer surgery and reconstruction, based on their individual situation. Users will have access to the latest expert opinions and studies, can search related topics and helpful resources, and find support in the app community.
"I'm very happy to say, the answer to my one wish during my mastectomy and breast reconstruction journey is here. An app where everyone can get information and expert guidance on surgery options tailored specifically for them, and support all in one place," shares BRCA patient Heather Barnard.
