MammoSite Therapy

MammoSite Therapy is an excellent choice for early stage breast cancer patients. This radiation option takes place after a lumpectomy has been performed. A small balloon is placed in the tumor cavity, then expanded to allow radiation to be directed precisely into the site. Treatment lasts approximately ten minutes, twice a day for five days. The ease of fewer treatments (5 days vs. traditional 35 days), improved cosmetic outcomes, and a low cancer recurrence rate makes this a viable option for many women.
