Finding Your Healthcare Team
Finding the right healthcare team can be daunting and scary, especially after just learning you have breast cancer. If at all possible in your area, try to find a team of providers who specialize in breast cancer. Depending on the surgery you end up choosing, ideally, you’d have either a breast surgeon who is trained in lumpectomy reconstruction or a team with a breast surgeon and a plastic surgeon. Do your own research and ensure your surgeons are board-certified. Remember, this is your health and your choice, so, ask all the questions you need to feel comfortable and safe with your team.
