Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer

With about 55.000 new cases annually mammary carcinoma is the most prevalent malignant tumor in women.

The chances of a cure for breast cancer are good – provided the disease is diagnosed in an early stage and treated. Which early detection methods do we have? Who do they apply to? And how does it proceed – when the finding is positive?

onko.tv informs you comprehensively about all aspects: about various therapy methods and their possible consequences. We will be talking with experts: gynecologists, oncologist and psychologists. But especially with women that relate their personal experiences in coping with the disease.
