For breast cancer patients in Cape Coral, FL, a lumpectomy, or the surgical removal of a breast tumor along with a small rim of noncancerous tissue, may be advised for treatment. In terms of a patient’s quality of life, a surgeon’s expertise can make a true difference. For this reason and others, many women travel to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa for lumpectomy surgery. In fact, Moffitt is the third-largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume, and each year we treat more than 1,000 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, a testament to our dedication to developing effective approaches to cancer treatment, including surgery. Due to technological advances, some tumors that were previously considered to be inoperable can now be treated with surgery, and Moffitt is at the forefront of implementing new and better techniques to give our patients the best treatment and care possible. Our patients also have exclusive access to promising new drugs and techniques that are available only in our clinical trials. Additional benefits of electing to have a lumpectomy at Moffitt to treat breast cancer include:
