All About Breast Cancer

The outlook for women with breast cancer has dramatically improved over the last 40 years. Ask our experts about the latest treatments including the genetic assessment of breast tissue which can tell how a specific cancer may spread and how it will respond to treatment.



The wide use of mammography has resulted in a large number of breast cancer cases being detected at earlier stages. Learn when to have a mammogram and how often. Or get information about risk factors.



We hope you'll join Dr. Mark Sundermeyer, medical oncologist, and Betty Cummings, breast cancer patient navigator, from The Rosenfeld Cancer Center at Abington Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, October 30 at noon.
