Breast Surgery

Group of women wearing pink shirts and breast-cancer-awareness ribbons

Most women experience breast changes at some time during their lifetime. Age, hormone levels, and medicines we take may cause lumps and discharges.

The Department of Surgery faculty whose specialty is breast disease use a multidisciplinary approach with other physicians at the Breast Center to determine the optimal treatment for each patient.

When many of us think of breast disease, we think of breast cancer, but there are many other breast diseases and conditions of which women need to be aware.
