Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women, except for skin cancers. It can also occur in men, but is less common. 

Breast cancer is a complex disease with many different types and categories. Because of extensive clinical research conducted on breast cancer over the past few decades, the treatment options now available for breast cancer patients are tailored to the specific type of breast cancer you have. 

Plus, many women are now undergoing routine breast cancer screening. This means that breast cancer is detected at an earlier stage for many women. And that leads to better outcomes. 

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, allow our team to guide you through a better understanding of breast cancer and the available treatments. This can also help you develop a set of questions you would like to ask your breast cancer specialist.
