Alaska Surgical Oncology helps Eunice avoid an unnecessary mastectomy.

After noticing a small blood spot near her breast, Eunice decided she needed to see a doctor. A 3D Mammogram discovered a small tumor in her breast, about the size of a grain of rice. She was diagnosed with a Stage 1 Breast Cancer and the oncologist recommended a mastectomy. In an attempt to avoid an unnecessary mastectomy, Eunice got a second opinion from Dr. Charles Portera at the Alaska Surgical Oncology Breast Center. Dr. Portera was able to save her breast and now Eunice is cancer free!
