Breast Cancer

Breast cancer occurs when there is abnormal, malignant growth within the breast’s cells. Common types of breast cancer include ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma, triple-negative breast cancer, and inflammatory breast cancer. 

Symptoms of breast cancer might include:

  • A change in the size or shape of the breast
  • A change in the breast’s skin texture
  • Redness or swelling 
  • Nipple discharge 
  • Lumps 

Several breast treatment options are available, depending on the type and stage of breast cancer and the individual’s symptoms. Our breast cancer therapies include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. Other treatment courses include radiation therapy and surgery.

Gynecologic Cancers

Gynecologic cancer arises when abnormal cell growth occurs within a woman’s reproductive organs or genitals. Gynecologic cancers are often named after the affected reproductive organ. We care for women with several gynecologic cancer types, including:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Fallopian tube cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Peritoneal cancer
  • Uterine cancer
  • Vaginal cancer
  • Vulvar cancer

Many gynecologic cancer types have few symptoms, so understanding your risk factors and undergoing regular screenings are vital steps. Treatment therapies depend on the cancer type and stage and the individual’s symptoms. Treatments include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery.
