About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of breast tissue. It’s more common in women, but men can get breast cancer too.

Our expert oncology team uses the most effective, leading-edge therapies to treat patients with breast cancer and its related conditions, including:

  • Breast cysts
  • Breast infections
  • Ductal cancers
  • Gynecomastia
  • In situ breast cancer
  • Lobular cancers
  • Male breast cancer
  • Metastatic cancers
  • Nipple discharge

Testing and Diagnostics

Your doctors use many diagnostic and prognostic tools to learn which therapies work best to treat your cancer. Taking into account factors specific to your case, like cancer type and the genetic or molecular profile of the tumor, this may include one or more of the following: 

  • Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Gene expression assay
  • Genetic testing and counseling
  • HER2/Neu
  • Hormone receptor (HR) status
  • Mammography (2D, 3D)
  • Ultrasound

Why Choose Us for Your Breast Cancer Care?

As our patient, you have access to the best specialists and a full range of support services for you and your loved ones, all under one roof. We’re able to minimize the time between your diagnosis and treatment with coordinated, whole-person care that always puts you first.

All patients at our Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center get a personalized experience, including rooms set to your temperature, lighting and sound preferences.


Your personalized treatment plan depends on unique factors, from your diagnosis to your preferences. Your local oncologists meet regularly with other regional experts to discuss your case. These multidisciplinary tumor boards help us to be sure you’re getting the very best treatment, so you don’t have to visit another doctor or specialist yourself.


One thing most patients can count on is that cancer care takes a team! Your multidisciplinary team may include board-certified medical and radiation oncologists. They pride themselves on using cutting-edge techniques such as 3D mammography when diagnosing and treating your breast cancer. If you need surgery as part of your treatment, you will be treated by a fellowship-trained oncoplastic breast surgeon.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best care. As part of this commitment, we partner with several local community and health outreach programs, such as the All-Inclusive Community Health Center (AICHC), to increase access to health care and social services.

We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, spiritual, gender and sexual identities of each member of our diverse communities. In keeping with our Mission, Providence offers financial assistance programs that provide free and low-cost care to those who are eligible.

We are part of the Providence Cancer Institute in Los Angeles, which features world-class oncologists at six hospitals. As our patient, you have access to the largest community-based cancer network in the United States. This means your local cancer care team shares knowledge and experience with other world-class clinicians across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of our network is one of the reasons more than 1,600 newly diagnosed cancer patients choose Saint Joseph Medical Center each year.

Providence is known for offering options – and hope – to patients seeking advanced therapies to treat their breast cancer. We partner with the Providence Research Center and other cancer research organizations. As our patient, you can participate in one of our many clinical trials. These include FDA-regulated trials that contribute to the development of new therapies, such as one studying the effects and safety of a medication for patients with a high risk of recurrent breast cancer.
