Women in Cape Coral, Florida, who have breast cancer and are considering a total mastectomy are encouraged to consult with the experts at Moffitt Cancer Center, located just a short drive away in Tampa. Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, a testament to our dedication to continually developing new and better cancer treatment methods. We offer individualized breast cancer treatment, and we take a multispecialty approach to ensure the best outcome for each patient. Our cancer specialists work collaboratively as a tumor board to review each patient’s case weekly and make adjustments, if needed. Our unique approach also allows our patients to receive several expert opinions before electing a total mastectomy.
The surgical removal of an entire breast, or total mastectomy, may be performed for a variety of reasons, including to address a primary breast cancer, as a preventive measure for women who have been identified as having an elevated risk of developing breast cancer or to treat breast cancer recurrence. No matter the reason, at Moffitt, you can rest assured that our surgeons have performed thousands of total mastectomy surgeries, and their skills increase with each operation. Additional benefits of trusting Moffitt with your total mastectomy surgery include:
