Nepal Cancer Hospital and Research Center

Breast Care Clinic: The Breast Clinic at Nepal Cancer Hospital & Research Center coordinates most up to date services, research studies and education to provide a highly personalized evaluation and treatment plan. This multidisciplinary approach assures that the combined knowledge and wisdom of many experienced breast cancer specialists are available to provide you with the latest quality breast cancer treatment and research.

The Breast Clinic provides diagnosis, imaging and treatment to those with breast changes and problems, including:

  • Abnormal mammograms
  • Breast cancer
  • Breast lumps
  • Breast pain
  • Fibrocystic breasts

Although most breast changes aren't cancerous, it's important to have them evaluated promptly. When changes are detected early, more treatment options are usually available, increasing the likelihood of a cure and long-term recovery.

The Breast Clinic offers:

  •     State-of-the-art screening and diagnostic services, including mammography, ultrasound, image-guided breast FNAC & biopsies and surgical biopsies
  •     Comprehensive care provided by a team of dedicated professionals from a variety of specialty practices
  •     Innovative treatment strategies and a supportive environment, making treatment as effective and comfortable as possible
  •     Genetic counseling
  •     Consultation and second opinions from experts from India
  •     Up-to-date educational programs for health-care professionals, patients and families
  •     Social services to assist patients and families with emotional and physical needs

Many Breast Clinic patients are self-referred; they come seeking an opinion on an abnormal mammogram, a physical change in the breast, a new diagnosis of cancer, or a high-risk family history.The treatment team develops an individualized, comprehensive treatment plan, thoroughly reviewing the options available for each patient. The team of health-care professionals in the Breast Clinic includes:

Surgeons (oncologic and reconstructive)
