One in eight women develop breast cancer

The right care makes a difference

Our goal is to save lives through early detection, state of the art imaging and cancer therapies. At Penn State Breast Center, we’re dedicated to serving you—our number one priority—and your family. We provide breast health support, education, and coordination of services for women of all ages and their families. Our multidisciplinary center provides advanced testing and treatment for benign and malignant breast disease.

Eight Reasons why you can trust us with your breast care

  1. Confidence. Our Penn State Health Radiologists, who read your mammogram, are specialized and dedicated to breast imaging; part of a comprehensive team working together to prevent and treat breast cancer. It makes a difference.
  2. Caring, compassionate staff. The technologists performing your mammogram are specialized and attend to your individual needs. It makes a difference
  3. Early detection for better outcomes. Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, is available to detect even more cancers before they are big enough to be felt on a physical breast exam. It makes a difference.
  4. State of the art. We offer automated whole breast ultrasound and breast MRI. These ground breaking imaging can better detect more cancers in certain groups of women. It makes a difference.
  5. Convenient and comprehensive. Same day results. If additional imaging is necessary after screening, we complete all needed evaluations in the same visit. It makes a difference.
  6. Proactive approach. For those suspected to be of high-risk, the Breast Center has a dedicated Risk Assessment Clinic to manage those special needs. It makes a difference.
  7. Community. With our Healthy Woman Program, we assist those who do not have health insurance through a partnership with the PA State Department of Health. It makes a difference.
  8. Research. We are a community of scientists and researchers that create knowledge for better breast health. It makes a difference.

Meet Rena Kass, MD

A love for operating and the courage of her patients are what drive Rena Kass, MD, a board-certified breast surgeon who for nearly fifteen years has been part of the Penn State Hershey breast cancer team. As a surgeon, her goal is to make her patients cancer-free. 

Dr. Kass performs a high volume of lumpectomies and mastectomies with a desirable cosmetic outcome so that when looking in the mirror, patients don't have a constant reminder that they had breast cancer. Because of the academic medical center setting, Dr. Kass believes that patients treated here have an opportunity to become part of the cure, as the personal stories they share with the multidisciplinary team could potentially spark our research that one day leads to a cure. Meet Dr. Kass.

Risks of breast implants

You may have heard recent media reports regarding breast implants and a rare form of cancer called Breast Implant Associated-Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, (BIA-ALCL). The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently updated information regarding BIA-ALCL and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is working closely with the FDA to monitor the disease. The Milton S. Hershey Medical Center wants its breast implant patients to be informed about BIA-ALCL and the FDA’s recommendations related to this disease.
