UCSF-John Muir Health Cancer Center in Berkeley

UCSF-John Muir Health Cancer Center in Berkeley, part of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, offers a full range of care in the East Bay. As a patient, you can expect world-class cancer treatment rooted in cutting-edge research and tailored to your unique condition. You'll also find a range of support services and educational resources to help you and your loved ones manage your care and become active participants in the healing process.

Surgeons and medical oncologists on our team have experience with most cancers, including those of the breast, gastrointestinal tract, head and neck, lung, thyroid and prostate, as well as gynecologic cancers, multiple myeloma and sarcomas.

Services include personalized treatment for both newly diagnosed and metastatic cancers, as well as ongoing surveillance and survivorship care. Immunotherapy, chemotherapy, lab and imaging services are available on-site. For patients with breast cancer or benign breast conditions, breast surgeons provide evaluation and diagnosis, along with the latest minimally invasive techniques, such as ultrasound-guided and fine needle aspiration biopsies.

New mammography services! Beginning October 12, 2020, we'll be offering screening and diagnostic mammography. UCSF patients may schedule their visit via MyChart.

Cancer care is one of many specialties at the Berkeley Outpatient Center, a collaboration between UCSF Health and John Muir Health. Our partnership gives you access to a wide range of medical services from two leading health systems under one roof.
