Breast Cancer

You probably know a woman who’s been impacted by breast cancer. If you were recently diagnosed yourself, you may be expecting to receive the same treatments that she did. You may even be anticipating the same treatment side effects.

But breast cancer is a highly complex disease, with many different types and subtypes. At Siteman Cancer Center, our Washington University Physicians understand that no two breast cancer cases are alike. They provide advanced, specialized care that cannot be matched in the St. Louis region.

Women who undergo regular screening for breast cancer have greater odds of recovery than women who do not.
