Breast Cancer Center
If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you have breast cancer or another breast disorder, you may feel worried or anxious. It helps to know that our team of experts will guide you through your options and provide you with the best cancer treatment plan possible.
The Breast Cancer Center offers personalized, high quality care in patient-focused settings at four convenient locations: UMass Memorial Medical Center, UMass Memorial Health – HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital, UMass Memorial Health – Harrington Hospital and UMass Memorial Health – Marlborough Hospital. We work with the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School on extensive cancer research and clinical trials, so our patients benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment options.
As multidisciplinary care practitioners, we bring our specialists together in a single setting to discuss each patient’s diagnosis and develop a thorough treatment plan. In most cases, you’ll only need a single appointment to meet with our team members one-on-one. We’ll answer your questions, discuss your concerns and attend to your physical and emotional needs. We encourage the involvement of your loved ones throughout the care process to complement the support we provide.
