Your Most Effective Breast Cancer Treatment Plan
Upon detection of even the smallest breast cancer tumor, your NCH Breast Center team works with you to create a comprehensive individualized treatment
plan. A highly skilled team of specialists – oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, and radiation oncologists—work together to ensure you receive the most
effective breast cancer treatment possible.
Your doctors use the following factors to determine the most effective treatment:
Size of tumor, if lymph nodes are involved, and whether the cancer has spread to other parts of your body, indicating the four stages of breast cancer: stages I, II, III, and IV
Sensitivity of your breast cancer to hormones, indicated by the presence of estrogen and progesterone receptors
Advanced Tumor Testing –multiple tests may be performed on tumor tissue that provide information which leads to effective personalized treatment. e.g.
HER2, Oncotype Dx, Mammoprint
