Our board-certified breast surgeons assure quality and compassionate individualized care of patients with breast masses or breast cancer as part of the Queens Cancer Center. State-of-the-art breast imaging is used, including digital mammography, breast sonography and breast ultrasound, breast MRI and PET scanning.
