Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Diagnosis, Treatment and Support

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.

Our unique program combines a multidisciplinary approach with a large breast cancer survivor support group to best meet the needs of our patients.

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.
