Treatments for breast cancer are always improving, and thanks to advances in science and medicine, patients have more options to treat their breast cancer than ever before. Because of all the treatments available, it’s important to learn as much as you can about each treatment so that you can make informed decisions and determine which treatments will help you the most. No matter what breast cancer treatment is right for you, the goal is always to help rid your body of as much cancer as possible and prevent the cancer from coming back.
If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, your MedStar cancer care doctor will take several factors into consideration before recommending the best treatment for you. These typically include:
The type of breast cancer you’ve been diagnosed with
What stage your breast cancer is in
Whether or not the tumor has metastasized (spread)
Whether or not your breast cancer has receptors for HER2, estrogen, progesterone and others.
Your MedStar Health Cancer Network physician will also take into account factors such as age, other health conditions you may suffer from as well as your personal preferences toward treatment.
