Courtney Cox Breast Cancer Journey

Courtney Cox-1Thanks to regular high-risk preventive screening and early intervention at The University of Kansas Cancer Center, Courtney Cox is sharing a breast cancer experience with the best possible outcome. Courtney, 43, was diagnosed in May with ductal carcinoma in situ, which is considered noninvasive or pre-invasive breast cancer. Courtney was considered at high risk for breast cancer because she had a lumpectomy four years ago to remove precancerous cells. Since that time, she has been followed closely ̶ having 3D mammograms and checkups every six months ̶ by the team at our Breast Cancer Prevention Center. After her May diagnosis, Courtney chose to have a bilateral mastectomy with breast reconstruction.

“The staff at The University of Kansas Cancer Center was amazing. Drs. Jamie Wagner and Richard Korentager helped me throughout the process, from my 3D mammogram, biopsies, genetic testing, bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. They were highly detailed, and kept me informed every step of the way. I am so thankful I was at The University of Kansas Cancer Center for monitoring and testing when my cancer was discovered.”
