The Breast Cancer Unit is made up of a multidisciplinary team dedicated to treating people affected by this disease, diagnosing suspicious lesions and treating people with benign tumors. Its main objective is to coordinate the healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat breast cancer.

The professionals who are part of the Breast Unit (more than 60 people from 14 different services) work together choosing, in each case, the best treatment for each patient.

Every Monday, all the specialists meet in a committee to exchange information and make decisions and, once a month, they attend research meetings, organized by the Unit, to expand and consolidate knowledge, always with the commitment of offering the best possible assistance to patients.

Through the 'Shared Care Program for Breast Cancer Patients', follow-up care is offered to women who have had breast cancer, once hospital treatment has ended. This program is carried out in the Barcelona Esquerra Comprehensive Health Area (AISBE), the Primary Care Centers (CAP) of the Catalan Health Institute (ICS), the Barcelona Esquerra Primary Health Care Consortium (CAPSBE) and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.

The main objective of the program is to improve the quality of life of women who have gone through breast cancer, offering comprehensive care, which includes cancer control, the reduction of possible side effects of therapies (fatigue, pain in joints, cardiovascular risk, bone problems, cognitive problems, etc.), associated diseases and the application of prevention and health promotion measures (psychological and social status).
