Breast Cancer Care
A program dedicated to you
After being diagnosed with breast cancer, you probably have a lot of questions. You deserve to have those questions answered in a timely manner and to understand and participate in your care plan. That’s why we’ve created a specialized breast cancer care program to ensure you and your family know what’s coming next and how we can treat your cancer together.
The breast cancer care program at Mayo Clinic Health System provides you same-day access to all the experts you need during your post-diagnosis visit. That means fewer appointments, less confusion and a clear, cohesive care plan early on. In short, it’s a one-stop-shop for your breast cancer needs.
You’ll have one-on-one meetings with your physician team members — from breast surgery to Oncology to Plastic Surgery, and you’ll be assigned a breast cancer care coordinator to help you through every aspect of your journey.
In addition, our team of cancer specialists will meet prior to your initial visit to discuss the best care plan for your diagnosis.
Your care team
The multidisciplinary team of experts caring for you includes:
- Breast surgeon
- Cancer physician (oncologist)
- Breast cancer care team (includes nurse coordinator, social worker, and dietitian)
- Certified oncology nurses
- Radiation oncologist
- Plastic and reconstructive surgeon
- Radiation therapists
We know a cancer diagnosis is scary and life-altering. Our commitment to you and your loved ones is compassionate, tailored care that allows you to continue your life as normally as possible. Our team, with the support and resources of Mayo Clinic, will treat you as a whole person, caring for you physically and emotionally.
