Discover the 5 Cs that make us the right choice for your breast cancer care. Choose Massey for your breast cancer care because we are: 

Cutting-edge

We offer state-of-the-art therapies and treatments for breast cancer, including sophisticated and less-invasive surgical procedures, advanced radiation treatment techniques, immunotherapies and precision oncology. And as a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, Massey has one of the largest selections of cancer clinical trials in Virginia, giving patients expanded treatment options and new hope every day.

Comprehensive

Massey offers a full range of treatment options and scope of care, from prevention and diagnosis to treatment, recovery and long-term survivorship for all types and stages of breast cancer and breast disorders. We also offer comprehensive support services that range from helping minimize symptoms and side effects to helping cope with the emotional and psychological effects of cancer.

Collaborative

Breast cancer care generally requires various forms of therapy and multiple specialized doctors, and Massey’s specialists work together in multidisciplinary teams to offer combined expertise and unified care. Massey pioneered the multidisciplinary approach to cancer care in our region. Our various specialists collaborate to offer one-stop consultations and highly coordinated care to guide each patient through every step of the treatment process. This approach ensures that patients who need several different therapies will receive the ideal combination and sequence of treatment. Our Breast Cancer Collaborative Care Clinic takes this approach one step further by bringing together all of the needed specialists to see patients on the same day in the same clinic. This efficient, coordinated care helps reduce treatment delays, lessens anxiety and leads to the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Compassionate

Patients have direct access to a nurse navigator, who will guide you through every stage of treatment and recovery. Through respectful, attentive and compassionate care, Massey’s cancer care team builds healing relationships with patients that help reduce suffering from cancer. We are committed to supporting you in every way we can – physically, emotionally, spiritually and otherwise – for as long as you need us. We’re your breast health partner for the long haul.

VCU Massey Cancer Center’s award-winning breast care team can guide you through the lifestyle, diagnosis and treatment decisions that offer you the best chance for the best possible outcome.

Customized

Recognizing that each patient is unique and each type of cancer is different, Massey provides treatment strategies and care plans tailored and individualized to you.
