Creating a Breast Cancer Treatment Plan
How we develop your personalized plan to treat breast cancer.
Successfully treating breast cancer requires more than a one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why we bring in breast cancer experts from a wide range of medical specialties, all with a single goal: Create a care plan that’s customized to you and your cancer.
Every week, our team meets in our tumor boards, where we discuss our patients’ cases and make recommendations for their care. Unlike other hospitals and health systems, which often reserve tumor boards for complex or unusual cases, we discuss each patient every time we meet. This ensures the treatment options we offer you are backed by the combined expertise of our entire team of breast cancer experts. Your treatment plan likely will include one or more of the following options:
- Radiation therapy
- Biological therapy
- Hormone therapy
- Breast reconstruction surgery
You also may be eligible to participate in clinical trials as part of your treatment. These trials may provide you access to advanced treatment options or techniques that are not widely available. Your breast cancer care team will discuss these options with you if you are a good candidate for a breast cancer clinical trial.
Your breast cancer treatment choices
You have many choices to consider when it comes to your breast cancer care. For many patients, these choices will be some of the most challenging ones of their lives. We’re here to provide you with all the information you need to make the best, most informed decisions about your treatment. Find out how to choose the right treatment team and plan for your breast cancer.
It’s often a good idea to confirm your choices by getting a second opinion on your breast cancer diagnosis and treatment plan. This can either give you confidence in your current care team or help you find a team and plan that are better options for you. Learn about our process for providing second opinions and when we recommend seeking one.
