Skilled in image-guided breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, sentinel node mapping and breast surgery, our surgeons can verify whether a lump in the breast is benign or malignant. Their surgical skills equally match their bedside manner, as they address not only the breast, but the entire woman.
For women facing a possible diagnosis of cancer (non-breast), our gynecologic oncology team of physicians and dedicated gyn-oncologic surgeons provide advanced care for cervical, ovarian and uterine cancers, as well as less common cancers.
Cancer Risk Evaluation Program (Genetics Counseling)
Many women have a hereditary susceptibility for breast or gynecologic cancer to consider. Evaluation and genetic counseling from specialists can help women identify higher health risks and make early adjustments to their lifestyle to reduce risk.
Because there is an untold difference between healing the body part and healing the total body, The Chester County Hospital provides avenues to holistic care, including guided imagery, healing-touch massage and Reiki manage. Such services help patients better cope with a cancer diagnosis and treatment.
