BREAST CANCER

Welcome to our home page about Breast Cancer. This site is designed to give you some basic information about the diagnosis and treatment of various stages of cancer, as well as some precancerous conditions of the breast. Whether you are already one of our patients, or someone who is receiving their care elsewhere, we hope you find this information helpful. We welcome any questions that are not adequately answered by these pages. If you are being treated elsewhere, but are interested in a second opinion on your own treatment, you may call our office at 404 508-4320, or e-mail us.
