The Med Center Health Hematology & Oncology Breast Clinic streamlines the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. If you have had a mammogram and need follow-up care, you can walk in during designated hours or make an appointment. Our dedicated nurse navigator will help guide you through the process and answer your questions.
You may be referred to the Breast Clinic by your radiologist following your screening mammogram if there are concerns that require follow up. Prompt follow up allows for quicker diagnosis which leads to earlier treatment when it is most effective.
How we can help
Depending on the results of your screening mammogram, we utilize many tools to rule out or make a cancer diagnosis. These may include:
- IMAGING – a more detailed diagnostic mammogram or an ultrasound may be needed if a screening mammogram detects an abnormality
- BREAST BIOPSIES – removal of tissue or cells that are reviewed by a pathologist to determine if cancer is present
- GENETIC RISK ASSESSMENTS – may be appropriate for individuals with a family history of breast cancer
If cancer is diagnosed, we will work with you to develop a customized plan tailored to your needs. We use a multidisciplinary approach and coordinate with other healthcare providers as needed. Treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy or oral hormonal therapy. Your specific treatment will depend upon your general health, your disease, and your goals. Your treatment plan may include more than one therapy.
We will keep your primary care physician informed as you progress through your treatment plan.
