October is breast cancer awareness month
Navigating through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship
No woman wants to be called back after having a mammogram, but when there's a suspicious finding additional imaging may be needed — usually an ultrasound or other mammography images. If this imaging also shows a suspicious finding, a biopsy is typically recommended, and a breast cancer nurse navigator or nurse connects with the patient. As a rule, patients with an abnormal diagnostic mammogram or a new breast lump are seen by a breast surgical specialist promptly to determine the optimal biopsy approach.
"This process can produce a lot of anxiety for patients," says Tara Sweeney, lead breast cancer nurse navigator for Main Line Health. "We're here to provide education and support. We tell people what to expect with the biopsy and set them up to meet with a breast surgeon. If they do have breast cancer, we'll stay with them throughout their treatment."
