What’s a Breast Specialist?

A breast specialist is a doctor with advanced training to prevent, diagnose and treat breast conditions in women and men. Your primary care doctor may refer you to a specialist for a breast health consultation:

Expect your breast specialist to work closely with other members of your care team, including your primary care physician and other specialists.

Breast Conditions & Symptoms

Find care for:

  • Breast abscess, a painful buildup of pus from an infection
  • Breast cancer
  • Breast shape or skin changes, such as puckering, redness or thickening
  • Cysts, lumps in the breast that may feel tender
  • Discharge not caused by breastfeeding
  • Benign (noncancerous) breast diseases, such as fibrocystic breasts, fibroadenosis and other breast changes
  • Gynecomastia, abnormal breast growth in men
  • Mastitis, infection of the breast
  • Nipple changes
  • Pain or swelling that’s severe or doesn’t go away

Breast Care & Treatments

Depending on your condition and symptoms, your doctor may recommend:

  • Breast biopsy, which takes a small sample of breast tissue for testing
  • Breast cyst aspiration, which uses a needle to drain a cyst
  • Clinical breast exam
  • Drainage of an abscess with a needle or incision
  • Diagnostic imaging tests, such as mammograms, breast ultrasounds or breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
  • Medications

Breast Surgery

Rely on our surgeons for surgical care that meets high standards for quality and safety. We offer procedures such as:

  • Cosmetic breast surgeries, such as breast lift (mastopexy) and breast reduction
  • Reconstructive surgery with breast implants or tissue from another part of the body (autologous reconstruction)
  • Surgery to treat breast cancer, including sentinel lymph node procedures, which check if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes
