Every year approximately 12,000 women in Texas are diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 2,500 die of this disease. In response to the substantial number of women who have breast problems, and for the comprehensive management of those found to have breast cancer, the Texas Women's Comprehensive Breast Center was established.
At Texas Women’s Comprehensive Breast Center we believe in the inherent value of all women.
We respect and celebrate each woman's unique personality, style, values, priorities, physical beauty, background and culture. No woman is replaceable and that each woman contributes uniquely to her family, profession and community.
Breast complaints, including abnormal mammograms, account for a significant number of visits to the gynecologist. Most of these problems are not due to cancer and can be resolved by an experienced breast surgeon. However, at some point in their life, many women will require a breast biopsy and 1 of every 5 biopsies performed will reveal cancer.
Early stage breast cancers are usually associated with a good outcome and therefore support all available measures to aid early detection. Our specialists acknowledge that we do not completely understand the behavior of breast cancer. Some cancers are very aggressive or are detected late. In those cases we are committed to aggressive treatment with the goal of cure.
We strongly believe in supporting patients and their family through all stages of the life continuum. We support each individual's right to self-determinism including the choice to seek and use alternative therapy.
