OPEN LINES OF COMMUNICATION DURING BREAST CANCER ONCOLOGY TREATMENT
Throughout the breast cancer treatment process, it is our goal to keep the lines of communication open. We provide the patient, family members and referring physician with ongoing operative and treatment reports and answer any questions that may arise.
PERSONALIZED BREAST CANCER ONCOLOGY
At UH Seidman Cancer Center, our breast cancer oncology team considers several factors when determining treatment, including the particular type of cancer as well as the individual needs of each patient. 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 TREATMENT
UH 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. Our breast cancer oncology team has expertise in palliative care, which focuses on treating cancer-associated symptoms for a better quality of life.
