Panel meeting review

The pathology report on your cancer will be available a few days after surgery.

The pathology results will be presented at a multidisciplinary panel meeting.

Modern breast cancer treatment involves a combination of treatment options designed to stop the cancer in its tracks.

A variety of specialists will be involved in providing these services.

The multidisciplinary meeting has evolved as an important tool in providing clear communication and discussion between these different doctors. The meeting is attended by:

  • Pathologist
  • Radiologist
  • Surgeon
  • Medical oncologist
  • Radiation oncologist

It provides an important opportunity to review your case comprehensively and to discuss the benefits and timing of any further treatment.

The optimum timing and sequence of treatments varies from case to case.

A personalised plan will be formulated for your situation.

This meeting can also be used as a forum to provide a second opinion on treatment options.
