Breast Cancer

If you have been diagnosed or suspect you have breast cancer or other breast disorder, you want a team of experts in your corner. Our specialists guide you through information and options so you can make the best decision for yourself.

Personalized and Specialized Care

You’ll have a one-on-one personalized session in a single appointment so in most cases, many visits are unnecessary. We encourage the involvement of your loved ones in the care process to complement the support we provide on your cancer journey. We're here to answer your questions, discuss concerns, and attend to your physical and emotional needs.

From diagnostic cancer screenings to biopsies and reconstructive surgery, our UMass Memorial Comprehensive Breast Center in Worcester, MA, provides expert breast care to you promptly and in a patient-focused setting.

Not Just a Team – A Small Army

The diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer often require the skills of many specialists. We bring together these specialists in a single setting (called multidisciplinary care). Here the team discusses care for each patient and develops a thorough treatment program. This provides you with the best cancer treatment plan possible.
