The Women's Cancer Center builds on
Fox Chase's world-renowned expertise
in breast and gynecologic cancers.
The Women's Cancer Center continues the Fox Chase tradition of integrating team science and discovery with research in order to provide personalized intervention for women with or at risk for these cancers. It includes both clinical and research programs which encompass the continuum of care from risk assessment, prevention, screening and diagnostics, treatment, support, education through survivorship.
Some women come to the Center for treatment of an already diagnosed condition; other women are making a visit for a periodic screening exam, or other preventive measure. Others, with a high-risk history of cancer in their family, come to take advantage of our comprehensive Risk Assessment program. Call today to talk to one of our counsellors about your concerns, or request an appointment.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC)
IBC is not a new type of breast cancer, but it is very important to distinguish IBC from other types of breast cancer because there are major differences in its symptoms, prognosis, and treatment. Diagnosing Inflammatory Breast Cancer can be difficult since the cancer is not apparent on ultrasounds, and mammograms are often painful and difficult for patients with a tender and swollen breast.More
