How far the cancer has spread and how large the tumor has become both factors into breast cancer treatment. Although surgery is typically required, many patients receive multiple types of treatments. This covers both local and systemic approaches to treating cancer, such as using medications to eradicate cancer cells anywhere in the body or treating breast cancer without damaging the rest of the body.
The following are the most common breast cancer treatments in Miami:
A procedure in which doctors perform a mastectomy or lumpectomy to remove cancerous tissue.
The reduction or elimination of malignant cells with anti-cancer medications may be ingested, administered intravenously, or occasionally both.
Prevent breast cancer cells from absorbing estrogen and progesterone, two female chemicals that can fuel tumor growth.
The use of medications that boost the immune system’s ability to identify and kill cancer cells, or that reduce the negative effects of other cancer treatments.
The destruction of cancer cells that remain after surgery or return to the area where the tumor was removed using high-energy X-rays or gamma rays. Additionally, it is employed to lessen the chance of a cancer relapse following mastectomy or breast conserving surgery.
