"I may not be the right person to treat your colon cancer or lung cancer, but I am the right person to treat your breast cancer, because that's what I do day in, day out," Dr. Riley says. With strong working relationships, our multidisciplinary teams make sure your care is managed with the expertise of those who specialize in your cancer diagnosis. Comprehensive Support In addition to the team treating cancer itself, it's important to find a team who can address your other medical concerns that may coincide with cancer treatment. Because breast cancer affects approximately 10 percent of women in their childbearing years and can affect fertility, the HER Program was developed at UofL Brown Cancer Center for women 45 or younger with breast cancer. The program also brings together experts in sexual health, cancer rehabilitation, genetic counseling, high-risk conditions and survivorship. Other support services, including those for children and caregivers, are also available through the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center. Already have a cancer care team? Ask for a second opinion. "Innovation happens at UofL Brown Cancer Center," Dr. Riley says. "We have a curiosity and a desire to answer unanswered questions and find undiscovered treatments in a particular cancer type. Not only can we provide different avenues of treatment, but even if you're already in treatment, we can provide a second opinion. Sometimes a second set of eyes on a problem is important, especially when you're talking about cancer care." Call UofL Brown Cancer Center at 502-562-HOPE (4673).
