Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most diagnosed cancers - affecting 1 in 8 women.

Breast cancer is one of the most diagnosed cancers - affecting 1 in 8 women. Groups of cancer cells may form in the breast and can then invade other surrounding tissue or spread to other places in the body (metastasize). Cancer cells grow when a cell's DNA is damaged. The cause of this damage has not been identified.  

Creating a battle plan for your cancer

Methodist Breast Care Centers combine the latest treatments with compassionate care. Each week specialists meet to discuss each individual case and jointly determine diagnoses and treatment options to provide you the best outcome. Together with you, we will develop a treatment plan just for your cancer. 

You are a survivor from the first day of your diagnosis. We are here with you.


We are a team guiding your treatment and recovery

This can be an extremely emotional and stressful time in your life. Our dedicated nurse navigators will help coordinate your breast health care and guide you through the appointments and choices you will face along your treatment and recovery process. 

And, our comprehensive survivorship program will ensure your medical and emotional needs are met well beyond your treatment and recovery. We bring a team of specialists together to create a unique plan for your exact cancer.
