If you do find a lump or any irregularity, finding the right doctor with training and experience in treating early breast cancer is key, Dr. Marcus says. "Board certified radiologists or surgeons, especially those who have had extra training in the treatment of breast cancer, have special expertise in performing the tests, like the less invasive needle biopsies, that can effectively make the diagnosis and guide treatment."
To find the best doctor for you, Dr. Marcus recommends looking at nearby teaching hospitals and cancer centers, as they will usually have the most cutting-edge equipment and be on top of the most recent research.
