Personalized Medicine for Breast Cancer
At UH Seidman Cancer Center, we take into account the particular type of breast cancer as well as the individual needs of each patient to plan the very best care. Personalized treatment plans may include:
- Novel treatments available only through a clinical trial
- Biologic targeted therapy
- Hormonal therapy
- Neoadjuvant (preoperative) or adjuvant (postoperative) chemotherapy
Metastatic Breast Cancer
University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center is a leader in offering care for patients with metastatic (recurrent) breast cancer. While metastatic breast cancer is not curable, treatment can prolong life and reduce symptoms from the disease. After the diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer, women often live active lives for many years.
For women with metastatic breast cancer, we offer a variety of treatment options and leading-edge clinical trials. Also, our oncologists have expertise in palliative care to treat cancer-associated symptoms, providing for the best quality of life.
