A biopsy can be performed at any time during this process. If/when a mass is noted it is quickly tested to determine the course and treatment of your illness. As your treatment progresses, your nurse remains in close contact. The nursing team is able to help you to navigate the system and to make choices that work for you. Importantly, most patients see multiple experts and learn about options.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
