There are also a number of non surgical treatments which may be recommended for some patients with breast cancer:
- Chemotherapy for breast cancer is delivered on the Churchill Oncology Unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
- Radiotherapy for breast cancer is delivered at the Christie Hospital, Salford Royal Hospital and Royal Oldham Hospital.
- Endocrine therapy (hormone treatment) is commenced on the Breast Unit and then care is followed up by the patient’s GP.
- Herceptin (drug used to treat some types of cancer) is managed by the Herceptin Team at Christie Hospital, however, a small group of patients may receive this treatment on the Churchill Oncology Unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
