When breast cancer is first diagnosed, doctors will precisely locate the cancer, determine whether it has spread, and if so, find out where. To do this they use a process called breast cancer staging. Determining the breast cancer stage of a patient helps in crafting the best treatment option and in predicting how the cancer might progress. Breast cancer staging may also be used to evaluate eligibility for clinical trials that explore better methods of cancer treatment.
The specialists at Beaumont Cancer Institute will take time to explain fully a breast cancer diagnosis, staging of the disease and the available treatment options. The multidisciplinary team will evaluate all aspects of care to create a customized plan of treatment based on the patient’s unique medical and personal needs.
