From Mammograms to Breast Cancer Treatment

Finding a lump or experiencing breast pain comes with feelings of uncertainty. You want to know what’s causing it, and you want an accurate diagnosis.

That’s the goal of our breast care specialists at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital. We provide best-in-class specialty care for a wide range of breast conditions. We believe that every woman over 40 (unless high risk) should have a yearly mammogram.

From routine mammograms to addressing BRCA gene mutations, we offer all the services you need in one location that’s close to home.
