Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
Every year in the United States, close to 260,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. They are women of all ages and all types: young women, older women, wives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, friends and loved ones. While the types of breast cancers vary almost as much as the women who are diagnosed with them, more is known about breast cancer than ever before.
No matter where you are in your journey through this illness, the Johns Hopkins Breast Center offers a comprehensive program with breast cancer specialists who can manage any phase of your disease.
At Johns Hopkins, the skin sparing mastectomy is the most common type of mastectomy surgery. Preserving the skin during breast removal allows for a better reconstruction result.
Know Your Options for Breast Reconstruction
Many women treated for breast cancer have not been told that they’re eligible for breast reconstruction. Learn about advanced reconstruction options at Johns Hopkins.
