While the management of breast cancer includes a variety of techniques, the primary treatment is surgery, either preceded or followed by chemotherapy.

At the Magee-Womens Breast Cancer Program in Pittsburgh, Pa., we use state-of-the-art treatment options to battle breast cancer, including:

Our specialists work closely to evaluate your breast cancer and determine the best course of treatment, based on:

  • Your type of breast cancer
  • Your tumor size
  • The stage of your breast cancer, if it has spread, and to what extent
  • Your prognosis

We also take into consideration your individual choices and encourage you to play an active role in deciding and planning your breast cancer treatment.
