Breast cancer is a type of cancer that affects the breast. It can start in the ducts that carry milk to the nipple, the glands that make breast milk, or other breast tissues. The breast cancer programs at Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis and Henrico Doctors’ hospitals are fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Our multidisciplinary approach means you and your loved ones will work with nurse navigators during your entire journey – from mammography through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and advanced breast reconstruction. Our comprehensive services include molecular profiling, genetics, oncofertility counseling and support groups.
