Breast cancer diagnostics and treatment options
In this era of precision cancer care, identifying breast cancer treatment options that meet your needs requires expertise, and that starts with an accurate diagnosis. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), our clinicians understand that breast cancer is a complex disease, with multiple causes, types and treatment options. Because our doctors treat only cancer, they have the training and experience to diagnose and treat many breast cancer types, from triple-negative, inflammatory and metastatic to luminal, HER2-positive or others.
In diagnosing and staging the disease, our cancer experts use sophisticated diagnostic tools to locate the tumor and determine whether it has spread. Your care team may also test the tumor for specific genetic abnormalities or hormone sensitivities that suggest it may respond to targeted therapy or other personalized treatments. If a lumpectomy, breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy is part of your treatment plan, we offer microsurgical and other innovative breast reconstruction techniques to help restore your breast to a more normal appearance, when appropriate.
As part of our commitment to delivering advanced treatments when possible, your oncologist may help determine if you are a candidate for one of our ongoing clinical trials. Your care team may also suggest supportive care therapies to help you manage pain, nausea, insomnia and other side effects of treatment.
