First Steps After a Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Receiving a breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, and you may feel unsure about what to do next. One of your first important decisions is choosing whom to entrust with your breast cancer care. Depending on your diagnosis, you might need a breast cancer surgeon, medical oncologist or radiation oncologist. These people and others will become your breast cancer treatment team — and your partners in your breast cancer journey.
At the USC Breast Center, we have a highly skilled and compassionate group of breast cancer experts to be your partners, from diagnosis to treatment to follow-up care to survivorship. This dedicated team of breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, genetic counselors, dieticians and psychiatrists works collectively to create a plan that is centered around you.
