Comprehensive care for breast cancer

Breast cancer occurs when the cells in the breast grow abnormally. Once breast cancer starts, it can spread to other parts of the body. Because breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, breast cancer screenings and examinations are crucial.

Many of our Baylor Scott & White Health locations offer dedicated breast health navigators to help guide you through your treatment plan, collaborate with your physician and make appointments as necessary. Our navigators can also offer referrals to other sources of support and aid with emotional needs.


Breast cancer treatments

Your treatment plan will be determined by your care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of breast cancer, and personal preferences. Options may include:
  • Breast-conserving surgery
  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Pain management
  • Clinical trials
  • Genetic testing and counseling
