All breast cancers are unique, so all breast cancer treatments must be personalized and unique. Breast cancer treatments can be surgical or non-surgical — radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy. In most cases, however, you may need a combination of numerous surgical and non-surgical techniques. Your breast cancer treatment plan might be based on numerous factors, such as the size of tumors, the tumor’s features, the number of affected lymph nodes, and your medical history and preferences.
