Your Breast Cancer Team


At Lancaster General Health, our goal is to keep you healthy. That’s why we have a team of medical specialists who focus on breast health and the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. When you have breast cancer, your treatment team includes a variety of specialists who collaborate to provide comprehensive breast care.
 

Your breast cancer doctors

The physicians who collaborate on your care may include:

  • Diagnostic radiologists who use mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI and other techniques to examine breast abnormalities and evaluate the type and extent of any breast cancer
  • Medical oncologists who develop an overall treatment plan, which might include chemotherapy or other medications
  • Radiation oncologists who use MammoSite® radiation therapy or other techniques to cure cancer or control its spread
  • Surgeons who are skilled at minimally invasive breast biopsies, breast conserving surgery, mastectomy and reconstructive surgery for good clinical and cosmetic outcomes
  • Pathologists who provide fast, accurate laboratory results to diagnose breast cancer and determine its stage—how far it has spread—so your doctor can determine the most appropriate treatment

The clinical support team

In addition to doctors, your care team may include a number of other professionals with special expertise who are committed to providing you with the support you need on your journey. You may work with:

  • Nurse navigators
  • Oncology-certified registered nurses
  • Mammography technologists
