Breast Cancer Treatment Choices to Discuss with Your Oncologist

Our breast multidisciplinary clinic (MDC) offers a comprehensive clinic visit with a breast surgeon, radiation oncologist and medical oncologist in one day.  This team of healthcare professionals works in collaboration with you to develop a personalized plan of care using nationally-recognized best practice guidelines. A process that might otherwise involve multiple visits is completed in a single day allowing for a more timely start of treatment and providing comprehensive cancer care to you and your family.

Your day at MDC begins with a visit and exam with a breast surgeon. Next, your care will be discussed in a tumor board by our entire team of specialists who will develop your individualized treatment plan. You will then have an opportunity to meet independently with the breast surgeon, radiation oncologist, and medical oncologist to review your results, the recommended treatment options, answer questions, and discuss the next steps. By the conclusion of the MDC visit, you will take home an individualized plan of care.

Our Nurse Navigators will partner with you and your family to offer support, answer questions, assist with scheduling appointments, and coordinating care throughout your cancer journey.  Additional resources are available to you and your family through our cancer support services to address any barriers to care, psychosocial and financial support.

Surgery is a common treatment for breast cancer. It is done to remove as much of the cancer as possible. Part of a patient’s multidisciplinary team, Valley’s team of three surgeons and two physician’s assistants routinely perform mastectomy and breast-conserving (lumpectomy) surgeries.

Valley is accredited as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery from Surgical Review Corporation. Status as an accredited Center of Excellence means that Valley has met nationally and internationally recognized standards.

Should patients choose to have reconstructive surgery, our team works closely with our plastic and reconstructive surgery colleagues to get the optimum cosmetic results for our patients.

If you're thinking about genetic testing because cancer runs in your family, or you've had it yourself, you might find it especially important if you or a relative had:

  • Breast cancer before age 50
  • Ovarian cancer at any age
  • Colon cancer before age 50
  • Endometrial cancer before age 50
  • Metastatic prostate cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer

When you first visit us, we'll talk about your health history and your family's. We'll help you understand your own risk of cancer, and we'll go over the benefits and limitations of genetic testing so you can decide if it's right for you. If you have a higher risk of breast cancer, we'll stay in close touch to manage your screenings. If you decide to go ahead with genetic testing the process is simple—it's just a blood test or saliva sample.

Insurance usually covers the cost of consult appointments with genetic counselors. If you have concerns about your insurance plan coverage, we're here to help with all the insurance details before you come in. For patients who choose to go ahead with genetic testing and pay out-of-pocket, it generally costs less than $100.

  • Lymphedema (swelling)

  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Balance issues
