Breast Cancer Treatment Options

Most people with breast cancer get more than one type of treatment. Options include:

  • Breast cancer surgery removes the cancerous tumor. We offer breast-conserving lumpectomy and nipple- and skin-sparing mastectomy, as well as traditional total and modified radical mastectomy. Learn more about breast cancer surgery.

  • Systemic therapies use medications to target cancer cells throughout the body. Systemic therapies include chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy.

  • Radiation therapy after breast-conserving surgery decreases the risk of cancer returning. Our radiation therapy services include external whole-breast radiation.

  • Reconstructive breast surgery uses implants to create breasts after mastectomy.

  • Clinical trials allow you to try an alternative therapy to potentially treat cancer or relieve treatment side effects. Learn more about cancer clinical trials.

Patient Support Services

Our patient support program helps you manage the challenges and stresses that accompany a breast cancer diagnosis. We offer:

  • Mental health and wellness services to help you and your loved ones cope with a cancer diagnosis

  • Social work and support groups to assist with bill payments, transportation and social support
