Breast Cancer Surgeons
A breast surgeon serves many roles in detecting and treating a cancer.
It is important to note that being referred to a surgeon does necessarily mean you have cancer. Breast surgeons help determine if an abnormality is cancer.
In general, a breast surgeon or a surgeon specializing in breast care is trained to evaluate and manage patients with breast pain, benign lumps and cysts and abnormal mammograms, in addition to breast cancer.
It’s important to find a physician that you are comfortable sharing your concerns. Below is a list of surgeons at Woman’s who specialize solely in breast cancer surgery.
