Your Care Team at Columbia Cancer

Your care team may include:

  • Breast imaging radiologists, who look for abnormalities in mammograms, MRIs, and other visual screening tests.
  • Pathologists, who examine tissue and fluid to look for changes in cells in order to classify a tumor’s stage and look for markers that will help your care team determine the best course of treatment for you.
  • Medical oncologists, who direct treatments such as hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.
  • Breast cancer surgeons, who partially (lumpectomy) or completely (mastectomy) remove the breast tissue to take out a tumor.
  • Reconstructive surgeons, who reform or reshape breast tissue after lumpectomy or mastectomy to help you feel more self-confident and better after lumpectomy or mastectomy.
  • Radiation oncologists, who use radiation to precisely target cancer cells, causing them to be damaged and die.
  • Nurses and nurse practitioners, who provide hands-on medical and supportive care along your journey. Nurse navigators may also help you through specific processes, such as enrolling in a clinical trial.
  • Genetic counselors, who run our genetic testing program and provide you with information about testing and help and support in interpreting results.
  • Mental health experts, including our psychosocial oncology team, who help you and your family cope with the wide range of emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis.
  • Social workers, who can help you find resources in the community and provide emotional support.
  • Integrative health practitioners, including reiki, massage, acupuncture, yoga therapy, meditation, and more, to help you deal with the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of cancer treatment and survivorship.
  • Nutritionists, to help you create and follow a plan that will support the healing your body must do during and after cancer treatment.
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, who help you regain function you might have lost due to surgery or treatment side effects. These providers also have expertise in treating lymphedema.
  • Fertility preservation specialists, to help you navigate this issue if you wish to become pregnant after cancer treatment.
  • Spiritual practitioners, multifaith chaplains who can help with your religious, spiritual, and emotional needs and help you make decisions, participate in religious rituals, and more.
  • Cancer support groups, often run by survivors, that can help you find community and support on your journey.
