As a part of their free health and wellness speaker series, the Tahoe Center for Health and Sports Performance presents Breast Health and Cancer: Knowledge is Power with Ahrin Koppel, MD. The talk is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. upstairs at TCHSP. It’s important to know that the vast majority of breast lumps are benign. They do no harm and cause no foul. However, awareness of an abnormality is paramount to staying well and finding those lumps that will cause a problem. Knowledge truly is power. Educate yourself so that if you or a loved one is touched by cancer, you will be ready. Dr. Koppel’s talk will include information on breast health including: categorizing benign lesions, incidence of malignant lesions, imagining and biopsy of a breast mass, and incidence of benign findings; and information on breast cancer including what is cancer, staging, treatment, living with cancer, and risk factors. Info: 10710 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, (530) 587-3769
