While surgery is often considered the initial or primary treatment for Breast Cancer, additional treatment with systemic chemotherapy or hormonal agents is often necessary or recommended.

There are many different types of systemic therapy and recommendations for therapy are individualized for each patient. For more information on treatment of breast cancer, please visit the Breast Cancer External Icon section of the Health Information Center.
