Breast Cancer Care

AdventHealth Waterman

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, you may have many questions and few answers. Don’t feel alone.

Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer affecting U.S. women. About 12.4 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime.* The good news: with advances in detection and treatment, many women can and do beat breast cancer. While it may be one of the biggest challenges of your life, overcoming breast cancer — with the help of your treatment team — is our goal for every patient.

The Breast Care Program at AdventHealth Waterman is here to help you understand your diagnosis and provide you with personalized care for the mind, body and spirit. To do so, we’ve assembled a team of highly experienced doctors — including breast surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists — that will evaluate your breast cancer and develop a plan for treating it.
