A multidisciplinary team
A team of doctors and nurses who specialise in the treatment of breast cancer will develop a treatment plan specifically for you. The treatment you receive may include surgery, radiation therapy and medical oncology treatments such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapies.
You may also be eligible to join a clinical trial. The different options appropriate to your care will be discussed with you when you attend the clinic.
Factors affecting treatment
We will personalise your breast cancer treatment to your individual needs. The type, order and duration of your treatments will depend on a number of factors. These include whether and how far the cancer has spread, the size and location of the affected area, and how abnormal or aggressive the cells look under a microscope. We also take into account your general health.
You will receive most of your treatments as an outpatient, and your General Practitioner will remain an important person in your ongoing care and follow-up.
