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

The site just had a big make-over.


This website with information on breast cancer, mixes the medical information and the average person’s point-of-view, plus Dr. Halls sense of humor and the Moose to be super serious.

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 and laboratory results, 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.

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.
