Breast Surgical Oncologist
Depending on individual circumstances, you may see a breast surgical oncologist who specializes in breast cancer surgery.
Certified Mammography Technologists
During both screening and diagnostic mammograms, BayCare's certified technologists can ensure clear, accurate images for your doctors to review. While helping you monitor your health, they also keep your comfort and privacy in mind.
Medical Oncologists have special training in diagnosing and treating cancer in adults using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy and targeted therapy. A medical oncologist often is the main health care provider for someone who has cancer. A medical oncologist also gives supportive care and may coordinate treatment given by other specialists.
Our highly qualified and compassionate nurses will assist patients in diagnostic and treatment procedures, and often serve as a very personal resource for breast cancer patients.
Radiation Oncologists and Therapists
As part of your breast cancer treatment, you may see a radiation oncologist or therapist, who both specialize in providing radiation treatment specific to breast cancer patients.
Our board-certified radiologists, who are specialize in breast care, will review your images and discuss any areas of concern with you and other doctors on your team. They may also perform image-guided biopsies for suspicious areas.
Some breast cancer patients also see a breast surgeon who specializes in cancer surgery not specific to breast cancer.
