Surgery: Surgery is often the first step in treating breast cancer. Whenever possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as sentinel node biopsy (testing a small number of lymph nodes to determine if your breast cancer has spread), to reduce risk and recovery time. We also offer specialized breast surgeries including:
Radiation: Our radiation oncologists use the latest image-guided techniques for breast cancer treatment, localizing and targeting the radiation to conserve breast tissue.
Medical Therapy: Medical therapy for breast cancer may include chemotherapy, hormone therapy or targeted biologic therapies, before or after your breast cancer surgery. Our experts are trained in managing a wide range of anti-cancer medications and drugs that target specific breast cancer cells.
Diagnostic Imaging: In addition to using our Breast Imaging Center of Excellence at Rochester General Hospital, we work alongside our community’s private radiology partners to help you get regular screenings to detect cancer as early as possible.
Some of the most common tests to screen for breast cancer and other breast disorders are:
Pathology and Cytology: Our nationally-recognized team is ready to diagnose your breast biopsy quickly and accurately. We’re ready to get you the answers you need so you can make the best decisions for you and your loved ones.
Genetic Counseling for Breast Cancer: Some people have a gene that places them at high risk for breast cancer and other forms of cancer. Our team of genetic counselors can find out if you or your family members are at high risk and recommend additional screening measures if necessary. Learn more about genetic testing.
