At Compass Oncology, our team of specialists is committed to your cancer care. The breast cancer specialists team at Compass Oncology is comprised of:
Your breast cancer treatment will depend on the specific type or category of breast cancer that you’ve been diagnosed with, whether it’s invasive or non-invasive, and the hormone receptor status. There are certain types of breast cancer that are more common than others.
You and your oncologist will work together to decide on the cancer treatment that’s best for you, based on the stage of your breast cancer and other factors. Treatment options can include:
Compass Oncology and US Oncology Research work together to provide cancer clinical trials for new breast cancer treatment therapies. Search for a breast cancer clinical trial that might be ideal for your type of breast cancer.
You might choose to undergo breast cancer reconstruction. This can happen after or during a mastectomy.
There are many types of reconstruction that depend on your age, body type, and the type of surgery you had. You and an oncoplastic surgeon will explore your options together before a decision is made.
We encourage you to learn more and take advantage of our supportive care services, including our Women’s Cancer monthly support group at our Vancouver, WA location.
