Not every breast cancer is the same. Just like the woman who has breast cancer is unique, so should her treatment plan. You want to work with experts who treat you like an individual. You will find that at First Dayton Cancer Care. We are large enough to have the best possible treatment options, but small enough for personalized care.
You will work alongside of your cancer team to beat breast cancer for a long healthy life, but not forget you’re a person with daily needs today. We will help you reduce side effects, maintain energy, and stay positive. You will see the same staff members every day. From the receptionist to the physician, we are always here for you.
Studies show risk of death after 10 years is 20% lower for those who had lumpectomy and radiation therapy as opposed to those who had surgery alone.
Dr. Hughes has perfected the short course of radiation therapy. Short Course radiation therapy is done in just 3-4 weeks instead of 6 week like at ordinary cancer centers. Worldwide research proves that cancer survival, cancer control rates, and the cosmetic results were exactly the same when short course or long course were given after surgery. It is the Gold Standard of breast cancer care in Canada, Great Britain and Europe for 20 years.
Short Course radiation therapy has the added bonus of cost savings for the patient, but also allows you to GET BACK TO LIVING YOUR NORMAL LIFE QUICKER!!! You will be in and out of the center in about 15 minutes for daily treatment. Most people just want cancer treatment to be over so they can start healing.
Radiation therapy following mastectomy can reduce breast cancer recurrence by as much as 70%. Yet 1 in 3 breast cancer patients don’t get radiation treatment. Is that because their surgeon doesn’t send them? Or is it that the woman refuses treatment?
Why wouldn’t you choose to lower your chance of recurrence by 70%? Call Dr. Hughes today to live a longer, healthier life as not just a Survivor but as a THRIVER.
Radiation Therapy Is:
- Quick – Only takes a few minutes for treatment.
- Painless – You won’t feel anything during treatment.
- Your Breasts – It can allow you to keep your own breasts with a lumpectomy.
- Your New Breasts – Safe for those having reconstruction after mastectomy.
- Lifesaving – Can reduce your recurrence rate by 70%.
- Tiring – after 2-3 weeks of treatment, your body will use its energy to heal itself.
Radiation Therapy Is Not:
- Hair loss – we are not treating your head, so you will not lose your hair.
- Nauseating – It is not chemicals in your system like chemotherapy. It will nauseate and make you vomit.
- Going to Take Hours – some people come on their lunch break. It only takes a few minutes.
- Going to require someone to bring you.
Call 855-DAYTON1 for a consultation today, and get your life back faster.

What People Say
Everyone has been totally fantastic. The first week was very hard for me, but all 3 technicians I worked with made me feel great even though I know that first week is difficult for them (not on purpose). They always made me feel comfortable with my treatment and hugs when they knew I was having a tough day. I could not have been happier with any aspect of my care.Read more...
First, I have never been treated so well by all medical professionals. I was scared from the beginning. I was given info in a positive, accurate and direct manner. Because of this I was able to face the fears I had. Each visit strengthened me. I feel that if I had not come to First Dayton Cyberknife I would not have felt the hope I feel now. Is that not part of good treatment?Read more...
