Diagnosis and Treatment

The diagnosis of breast disease can be scary.  We are here to help.  At Kadlec, we treat a number of breast diseases including:

  • Benign Breast Disease
  • Breast Cancer
  • Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS)
  • High-Risk Breast Cancer

With a diagnosis of breast cancer, the treatment is complex and carefully designed to fit each patient’s particular circumstances. All breast cancers are different and each case requires its own approach. The three main approaches used to treat breast cancer include:

  • Surgery, to remove tumors (and tissue for biopsy)
  • Radiation therapy, using high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells
  • Chemotherapy and/or endocrine therapy, using drugs to target cancer cells

The specific type of treatment selected depends on many factors. It is possible that patients may receive more than one type of treatment.
