Our Comprehensive Breast Program provides personalized, advanced care for your diagnosis of benign (non-cancerous) breast conditions or breast cancer.
Benign breast conditions
Benign breast conditions are common and are not cancerous. Your breasts may undergo changes that cause symptoms such as lumps, swelling, redness, pain or nipple changes. Having any of these symptoms does not always mean you have cancer. During a complete breast exam, we will clarify your condition and decide if you need diagnostic tests or treatment.
We treat many types of benign breast conditions, including:
- Breast infection (mastitis) and breast abscess
- Breast pain (mastodynia)
- Conditions of the skin such as eczema, sebaceous cysts and Paget’s disease of the breast
- Enlarged breast tissue in a man (gynecomastia)
- Nipple problems such as eczema, duct ectasia, periductal mastitis and nipple discharge
- Non-cancerous breast lumps such as fibrocystic changes, fibroadenomas, lipomas, cysts and papillomas
Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can feel overwhelming to you and to your loved ones. We’re here to explain what’s involved and to support you at every step. At your first visit, your doctor will explain the details of your condition, answer your questions and discuss a treatment plan for you. There are many types of cancer. The type and the stage of cancer you have will affect our treatment recommendations.
Your treatment plan may include one or more of these:
- Genetic counseling
- Hormone therapy
- Lymph node evaluation
- Physical therapy
- Radiation therapy
We also provide complementary therapies such as exercise, dietary consultation, meditation, Reiki and more.
