In Part 2 of our interview with Dr. Timothy Allen, Chair of Pathology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS, the doctor encourages patients to advocate for themselves and talk directly with their pathologist to better understand their pathology report.
Catherine Young, Sr. Vice President of the Memphis MidSouth MS Susan G. Komen affiliate, and Molly May, author of My Crowning Achievement and a breast cancer survivor at the age of 19, talk with Dr. Allen about the details and treatment of a breast cancer diagnosis. Dr. Allen encourages patients to ask the difficult questions to better understand one’s diagnosis and options for treatment that could determine outcomes and survival.
