Breast cancer will affect one in eight US women in their lifetime. It is the second most common form of cancer for women behind skin cancer. At Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute, we’ve put together a team of nationally recruited physicians focused on using the latest technology in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Levine Cancer Institute is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
