Breast Cancer

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The good news: most will survive and return to active, healthy lives – due in large part to advances in treatment and earlier detection.

Mercy is proud to be a leader in breast cancer screening and treatment in ways that are saving lives, reducing treatment times and providing personalized care and support. We know what you’re going through. And we want you to have the comprehensive, compassionate care you need.

We will guide you through the entire breast cancer treatment process.

Your Mercy specialists will select tests that measure the extent of your cancer. Based on the results – along with other factors such as your family history and your overall health – we’ll recommend breast cancer treatment options that might include:

  •     Surgery
  •     Chemotherapy
  •     Radiation therapy
  •     Hormone therapy
  •     A mix of the above treatments

With surgery, one option is a lumpectomy – a breast-conserving surgery to remove only the cancerous cells. Another option is a mastectomy that removes the entire breast. Our Mercy team will discuss your options and help you reach the decision that’s right for you.

Care is personalized to meet your needs.

We understand that each cancer patient is different and unique, and so is the treatment plan that Mercy's care team develops. As a faith-based health care organization, we see ourselves being called to a higher standard. We focus on treating the whole person – body, mind and spirit.

Our goal is to provide you with a future that is cancer free and to get you back to doing what you love most, in the safest and quickest way possible.
