Breast Cancer

Advanced Treatment for Breast Cancer at Methodist Health System

Breast cancer can occur at any age, but it is more likely to occur after you reach the age of 40. Most women should have annual mammograms every year beginning at age 40, according to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). It is important to talk to your doctor about your past medical history and your family history of breast cancer. If you are found to have an increased lifetime risk of developing breast cancer, your doctor may recommend that you begin screening mammograms before the age of 40.

The Breast Center at Methodist Dallas specializes in the treatment of all types and stages of breast cancer, as well as high risk breast diseases. Prior to beginning treatment, each patient has the opportunity to consult with a team of multidisciplinary specialists who ensures that treatment recommendations are supported by evidence based guidelines. Nurse navigators provide patients with education, guidance to supportive care resources, and ensure that appointments are scheduled in a timely manner. Multidisciplinary clinic allows for patient to consult with most or all of their treatment team during a single office visit. But, no matter the appointment setting, our team includes shared decision making into the treatment planning process. So, together with the nurse navigators, surgeons, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist, every patient knows that they have had a voice in their treatment planning and that all specialists are in agreeance on their plan.
