Breast Cancer Chemotherapy at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL

For the latest advances in breast cancer chemotherapy, patients can turn to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. Our medical oncologists design individualized chemotherapy medications for each patient, taking into account unique factors such as the stage and cellular composition of a patient’s tumor.

In Moffitt’s Don and Erika Wallace Comprehensive Breast Program, patients can access a full spectrum of breast cancer chemotherapy medications – including those that are currently available only through clinical trials. Patients can also receive targeted therapies, hormone therapies and other novel options. Because our oncologists have today’s newest and most effective drugs at their disposal, they are able to develop treatment plans that offer significant promise in terms of not only clinical outcomes, but also quality of life.

At Moffitt, some of the chemo medications that we commonly prescribe for breast cancer include:

  • Cisplatin
  • Docetaxel
  • Doxorubicin
  • Epirubicin
  • Paclitaxel
  • Capecitabine
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Gemcitabine
  • Vinorelbine

While there are many different breast cancer chemotherapy medications, with each one potentially producing different outcomes for different types of tumors, it is crucial for patients to consult with physicians who have extensive expertise in treating breast cancer. At Moffitt, we have a team of medical oncologists who only treat cancers of the breast – including hormone receptor-positive and hormone receptor-negative tumors – giving them the experience necessary to know which medications to prescribe in each specific situation.

At Moffitt, patients from Tampa and other nearby areas benefit not only from individualized treatment plans, but also from several expert opinions in a single location. For instance, chemotherapy is often delivered in conjunction with radiation therapy and/or surgery, and our multispecialty team can determine the most appropriate combination and delivery schedule.
