What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a common cancer with a variety of sub-types which are managed through individually tailored approaches.
The breast team at the Northern Sydney Cancer Centre (NSCC) manages all types and stages of breast cancer from diagnosis, treatment and supportive care, including assessment of symptoms and side effects.
Patient cases are discussed at a multi-disciplinary team meeting (MDT) to ensure the best possible treatment recommendation is made. The breast team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, breast care nurses, a lymphoedema physiotherapist, pathologist, radiologist and geneticist.
Supportive care services include nutrition, social work and psychology.
