Cancer is personal, so is the way we treat it
Every breast cancer journey is different, and Ascension care teams will be by your side supporting you. We listen to what’s important to you, creating a care plan that’s focused on you.
A breast cancer diagnosis can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Ascension breast cancer specialists are here to answer your questions and help support your well-being — in mind, body and spirit.
Guiding the way through breast cancer treatment
Breast cancer isn’t just one disease or one type of cancer. You may hear terms like “ductal carcinoma,” “triple positive” or “HER2-positive.” It can be confusing. Our experienced specialists take the time to explain your diagnosis and treatment options, answer your questions and tell you what you might expect.
Your personalized care plan may include:
- Radiation therapy.
- Chemotherapy and precision medicine.
- Biotherapy, immunotherapies and/or anti-hormonal therapies.
Screening for early breast cancer detection
Regular breast exams, mammograms and genetic counseling can help with diagnosing breast cancer earlier, when it is more treatable. Ascension breast care specialists can help you assess your personal cancer risks and learn proactive steps to keep your breasts healthy.
Breast cancer awareness and screening are important for men as well as women. Because it is rare in men, breast cancer may go undetected. Our oncology care teams offer men diagnostic screening and personalized support for breast cancer.
Compassion at the core of our cancer care
From day one, our breast cancer care teams are committed to supporting you along your cancer journey. Beyond just treatment, we’ll help you manage side effects and fatigue and provide encouragement for you and your loved ones. We’re here for you every step of the way.
