Breast Center: Breast Cancer Treatment

When the diagnosis of breast cancer is established, it is important for the patient to understand the course of her or his disease and the best options for therapy. For treatment of breast cancer, the UF Health Breast Center – Jacksonville offers the collaborative efforts of highly trained UF specialists in breast surgery, medical oncology (chemotherapy) and radiation therapy.

The Breast Center also offers a dedicated patient nurse navigators to help guide patients from the time they are diagnosed through their treatment.

UF breast surgeons offer surgical treatment options for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

A patient may be given radiation therapy, chemotherapy or hormone therapy following surgery in an attempt to destroy any remaining cancerous cells. Proton therapy, a type of radiation therapy, is also considered. Typically, proton therapy begins four to six weeks following surgery or chemotherapy, and is given over a period lasting six weeks. UF Health Proton Therapy Institute physicians work closely with our breast surgeons and oncologists to create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Because each patient is different, the physician will review various treatment options with the patient prior to developing a treatment strategy.
