Many ways,: There is no single way to treat breast cancers, varius options with almost same results, from mastectomy, partial or total , radiation , chemotherapy etc first it depend on, stage of disease, type of cancer cell ( pathology ), lost but not least what type of treatment , between the options, the patient really wants.If patient is not happy with first opinion to take a second opinion and decide.

Find it early: Go to a center rich with informed and kind staff that has most of the options available, and they carefully work you/your loved one up for treatment...And that is guided by information, and includes the guarantee that they would want the treatment they are suggesting for you with youor features of the disease.
