    At the Comprehensive Breast Care Center, male and female breast cancer patients are evaluated by a team consisting of specialists from surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation medicine, diagnostic mammography, pathology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery. Our specialists work together in a single location to provide timely and accurate health care, from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment planning. Genetic counseling and testing services are also available.

    UK’s CBCC also offers breast tomosynthesis. This leading-edge technology takes multiple low-dose images of the breast and synthesizes them into a three-dimensional data set. For patients, a tomosynthesis exam will feel similar to a standard mammogram.
