The Breast Cancer Program at The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center
helps meet the special needs of women undergoing breast cancer diagnosis,
surgery, treatment and follow-up. Our dedicated nurse consultant works
collaboratively with physicians, nurses, case manager and support services
staff to educate and counsel patients, and ease them through this difficult
time in their lives.
Through a special grant, Community Medical Center coordinates outreach
programs that offer free screenings and treatments for breast cancer and
other certain cancers throughout Ocean County.
State-of-the-art diagnostic services are offered through Community Medical

- Screening and diagnostic mammography utilizing both digital technology
and the standard film-screen method
- Breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
- Breast needle localization
