Most, but not all, patients diagnosed with breast cancer need some form of medication as part of their treatment. At the Center for Breast Care at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System, our medical oncologists are specialists in the treatment of breast cancer.
We have a thorough knowledge of the complications, side effects, and psychological needs that breast cancer patients experience. Our doctors work closely together every day and can coordinate treatment efforts across different disciplines.
Types of medical oncology for breast cancer treatment:
- Hormonal Therapy
- Biologic targeted therapy (Herceptin®)
