Date:10/1/2008

Advances in diagnostics and genetic testing give women answers about their

risks

DAYTON, Ohio, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the U.S. Cancer Statistics Working Group (2007), an estimated 182,460 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in 2008. And while screening programs are resulting in the earlier detection of the disease when it is more easily and successfully treated, breast cancer claimed the lives of more than 40,000 American women in 2007. On the minds of many women is one simple question, "Am I at risk?"

Good Samaritan Hospital has launched a new High Risk Breast Cancer Program at Good Samaritan North Health Center (http://www.GoodSamDayton.org/highrisk) to provide women with answers.

"Diagnostic advances and genetic research have given us a better understanding of who is at greater risk for breast cancer, and this is helping us gather the information we need to advise patients on how to better treat and reduce the risk of disease," said Dr. Thomas Heck, co-director of the Samaritan Breast Center at Good Samaritan North Health Center. Good Samaritan's breast cancer program was the first in the nation to be Gold Seal- certified by the Joint Commission.

Dr. Heck, a breast surgeon, is a member of Good Samaritan's new High Risk Breast Cancer Program team, which also includes Ann Lensch, RN, MS, a breast care coordinator; Faith Callif-Daley, MS, a certified genetic counselor who is also on staff at Dayton Children's Medical Center; and Dr. Shamim Jilani, a medical oncologist. The team is supported by radiologists who specialize in the reading of breast exams, including Dr. Diane Anderson, co-director of the Samaritan Breast Center.
