Breast Cancer Risk in Survivors of Hodgkin's Lymphoma

I discovered this resource from Hodgkin's International titled
"Breast Cancer Risks For Hodgkin's Lymphoma Survivors"

At 15:22 on the video, the surgeon discusses The National Comprehensive Cancer Network clinical guideline on breast cancer screening for people who have undergone chest irradiation. This has important guidelines on when to start screening for breast cancer as well as methods of screening for breast cancer.

At 17:51 on the video, the surgeon talks about The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study breast cancer risk calculator. Unlike mainstream breast cancer risk calculators, The CCSS risk calculator includes questions on previous radiotherapy treatment.

I love that the surgeon provides strategies that survivors can use to advocate for themselves should they receive "push back" from medical providers.
