Breast Care With an Empathetic Approach

Women are intuitive and courageous.

That's why, at St. Joseph’s Health, we've brought a full range of breast care services under one roof, with an emphasis on emotional health. From surgical physicians, dedicated nurse practitioners, physician assistants, Nurse Navigators, genetic testing with counseling and a state-of-the-art women's imaging center, you can access the latest medical technologies in a compassionate, patient-centered environment.

Our multi-specialty approach ensures coordination of care between biopsy, surgery, radiologists and pathologists, as well as with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, when necessary. That's because we believe in treating each patient as a whole person and in considering emotional — as well as physical — well-being.

Common Risk Factors for Breast Cancer

Breast cancer and precancerous conditions do not discriminate by age or general health. Approximately one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and the second most common cause of death. However, there are many risk factors that can increase the likelihood that an individual will develop cancer. Proper screening is important for everyone at every age, and additional screening may be recommended based on your medical history — early diagnosis is an important part of treatment. For guidance on screening and your individual risk factors, consult your doctor.

Diagnosis, Treatment and Recovery

An accurate diagnosis is the most important step in designing a course of treatment for breast cancer, and every care plan will come with different recovery options. At St. Joseph’s Health, you will be a treated as a partner. We strive to keep you informed and empowered at every stage. Your doctor will discuss the options available based on your stage and type of cancer, but refer below for a quick overview.
