If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, we will perform other tests to find out if the cancer remains in the breast or has spread. The type and stage of the cancer indicate which treatment you require, but more than one is usually necessary:
- Surgery: the tumor is removed.
- Chemotherapy: medicines are used to destroy cancer cells.
- Radiation therapy: radiation is used to attack cancer cells.
- Hormonal therapy: blocks the production of hormones required by cancer cells for their development.
- Biological therapy: strengthens the immune system to eliminate cancer cells.
