We know breast disease can be scary. That's why we provide expert care with a personal touch. You will see fantastic doctors who truly care about your wellbeing. They will see you quickly and work to give you the best chance at recovery. 

When you come to the Cambridge Breast Center, you will get convenient care in a warm, community setting. This patient-first approach is one reason why we were the first nationally accredited Breast Center in Massachusetts.

What to expect

When you visit our center, you will find experts from the fields of surgery, mammography and cancer care (oncology). Together, we will work to give you quick answers and come up with a plan of care. 

You will get an exam and you may be referred for additional tests, like a mammogram, MRI or ultrasound. These may be on the same day or over the next few days, right in the same building.

Based on your test results, you may need a biopsy. This involves taking a small sample of breast tissue for testing. Our providers will help you understand your options and recommend the best method for you.

Afterwards, you will meet with your team to review your needs, answer your questions and create a plan.

If cancer is found, we may recommend surgery as a first step. You may also need medical treatment (chemotherapy or radiation) before or after surgery. We provide chemotherapy at Cambridge Hospital and Everett Hospital. If radiation treatments are needed, we often collaborate with the radiation oncologists at Mount Auburn Hospital.

Assessing your cancer risk

If you have close relatives with breast and/or ovarian cancer, we offer consultation and genetics testing with our High Risk/Cancer Genetics Clinic. Many people who carry a gene that increases the lifetime risk for breast or ovarian cancer are followed by our staff and the genetics clinic and have routine exams at the Breast Center.

Resources and support throughout your journey

We know that a cancer diagnosis can be scary and have a serious impact on your life. As a Cambridge Breast Center patient, you’ll have support throughout your treatment and beyond. Your social worker can connect you with a wide variety of resources, such as cancer support groups, online education and places where you can get things like nutritional counseling, mindfulness and acupuncture.
