Breast Cancer Program

At Temple, we’re helping breast cancer patients fight back to beat cancer. Our Breast Cancer Program offers advanced, comprehensive treatment from a team of breast cancer specialists dedicated to you and your needs, every step of the way.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer (other than nonmelanoma skin cancer) to be newly diagnosed among women. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women and some men will develop breast cancer. The good news is there are more than 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

At Temple, we use the latest technology and advanced treatments to diagnose cancer at its earliest stage. After diagnosis, our team of specialists will work together to individualize your treatment to offer the best chance of beating the cancer and minimizing the risk of recurrence.

Conditions Treated

We treat all types of breast cancers, the most common of which include:

  • Ductal carcinoma in situ

  • High-risk conditions (BRCA 1 or 2, family history, dense breasts)

  • Inflammatory breast cancer

  • Invasive ductal carcinoma

  • Invasive lobular carcinoma

  • Lobular carcinoma in situ
