I have a friend with breast cancer, and I want to look up something.

The site just had a big make-over.


The Search only works on the new content, so the old index still might have value.

Dr. Halls
The old index of pages.

Older Breast Cancer Index

This website breast-cancer.ca began in 2000 to 2003, and had some updates in 2010. In January 2015, the site was re-made, with new style, and refreshed with the latest information available at that time.

Nowadays there are many websites with information on breast cancer, and this one exists with a goal of mixing together the medical information AND the average persons point-of-view.

This site describes the many common and less common types of breast cancer and other benign and malignant breast diseases. It covers breast cancer screening, staging, and tumor grading. The focus is mostly on diagnosis, but there is also some treatment information and prognosis information, although for the absolutely best, latest, state-of-the-art information on treatment options, it’s always best to directly talk to an oncologist specializing in breast cancer.

The new website content is just arriving

Who are you?

Dr. Halls Dr. Halls
Thanks, I should know this.


I’m Dr. Steven Halls, MD,FRCPC, a radiologist in Canada. My main website is halls.md. I made a Breast Cancer Risk Calculator in year 2000, and a few years later I started this website on Breast Cancer. I also have a hobbies website on halls.ca, and my software development of the Talking Moose is on Talkingmoose.ca. I did breast cancer research during the first half of my career at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, along with a lot of oncologic imaging. Now in the second half my career, I work in Camrose, Alberta, Canada as a radiologist, where I continue to do mammography and breast cancer biopsies and staging and followup scanning every day.
