Breast Cancer Treatment begins with precision diagnostics followed by a thorough evaluation of “your” cancer. Research has shown us that there is not a one-size-fits-all treatment approach to breast cancer. The team at The Breast Institute examines and discusses each case to develop a treatment plan tailored to address the uniqueness of each patient. In many instances there may be more than one right option for treatment. In order for you to make an informed decision, we take time to be sure you have met with the physicians who will explain your choices, and work with you to personalize your cancer journey.
