Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women. Its diagnosis and treatment are part of the practice of a wide number of medical specialties including primary care physicians, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals. There are national initiatives calling for a multidisciplinary approach to the care of these patients.
