Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. One in eight U.S. women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. The good news is that the five-year survival rate is more than 90 percent for breast cancers detected early.

Breast cancer can be as individual as you. That’s why at the Braman Family Breast Cancer Institute at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer personalized breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and care — all from the brightest minds, using the most targeted treatments.

We also offer advanced treatment options for those with metastatic breast cancer (cancer that spreads to other parts of the breast or body) and the region’s top expertise in breast reconstruction surgery.
