Lifestyle & Breast Cancer

Over the last twenty years, the survival rate for breast cancer has significantly improved. According to Dr. Sunil Verma, new models of care are helping; “We’re choosing the right treatment for the right patient.” Dr. Sunil Verma believes that as we go forward, we need to “not only individualize the therapy based on the tumor, but we also need to personalize the therapy based on the person, to start integrating other lifestyle factors into the breast cancer patient. These include diet, exercise and limiting the use of alcohol.”
