Your Initial Consultation

In your first consultation, you’ll learn how radiation therapy can be used to treat your breast condition.

We’ll need to review your medical records, and you should bring any relevant X-ray films, CT scans, MRIs and other scans.

We may also need to conduct a physical examination.

During your appointment, you’ll discuss treatment outcomes and expectations, as well as common side effects and the usual length of your treatment.

We encourage you to ask us anything you want to know about your condition and treatment options.

You might find it less stressful to bring along a close family member or carer.

If, after your consultation, you decide to go ahead with radiation treatment, you’ll make arrangements for a CT simulation appointment. If your treatment is urgent, this may be on the same day as your first consultation.

Remember: at any time, you can ask your radiation oncologist, or any of our friendly staff, to explain anything you’re unclear about - including any words or medical terms you don’t understand.

SUPPORTING A LOVED ONE
When people with cancer undergo treatments, the focus is on them and their needs. Yet cancer often affects more than just one person. In many cases, it’s the entire family, and especially the caregivers – who are also significantly impacted by the experience.

WHAT IS RADIATION THERAPY?
Radiation therapy uses radiation to kill or damage cancerous (abnormal) cells and stop them from growing and multiplying.

It is one of the best-established, most effective and well tolerated therapies for treating almost all cancers, extending lives, and reducing suffering.
