Breast Cancer, Beware!

Veronica Jones, M.D

City of Hope physicians are at the forefront of the battle to erase breast cancer with their strong commitment to new and innovative treatments.

Veronica Jones, M.D., the new chief of the Division of Breast Surgery, is actively investigating leading-edge treatments for breast cancer patients, including robotic mastectomies and combining precision medicine with novel imaging technologies to minimize complications and side effects.

“We can manage a lot of breast cancers and extend life. And a lot of breast cancers are curable,” says Dr. Jones. Screening for risk factors and undergoing tests like mammograms are crucial.

And in exciting new developments, researchers at City of Hope and Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), a precision research organization that is part of City of Hope, have created a new approach that could detect cancer earlier.

This technology, called A-Plus, has shown promise in detecting various cancers, including breast cancer. It requires smaller blood samples, making it more practical for widespread use.

City of Hope remains committed to pushing the boundaries of cancer research and technology and paves the way to a day when cancer is not only treatable but preventable.
