The CHI Health Breast Health Center at Lakeside is dedicated exclusively to breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and the management and surveillance of pre-existing cancer. We see patients for breast problems, lumps, nipple discharge, and breast pain. The Breast Health Center offers genetic testing for Hereditary Cancer Syndromes –inherited genetic mutations that put families at risk for developing different cancers. We diagnose, treat, and follow patients with breast cancer. We have a high risk clinic that follows women at high risk for breast and other cancers to ensure coordination of care.
Breast Cancer Team
For those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, they meet with our multi-disciplinary team. This team includes a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, surgeon, breast radiologist, and pathologist who work with you and your family to create an excellent plan of care addressing the needs for your body, mind, and spirit. If cancer is detected, patients of the Breast Health Center are also offered the opportunity to partner with a Nurse Navigator. A Nurse Navigator is an oncology-certified nurse who is available to guide patients through the entire process of diagnosis and treatment.
