The aim of Breast Centres Network (BCN) is to create a network of centres of excellence for the treatment of breast cancer. The directory of specialist breast units offers relevant information on centres with specific expertise in diagnosis, state-of-the-art treatment, and care of breast cancer.  

The data collected, which you voluntarily submit, will be used to make the centre more visible and not for medical diagnosis or the provision of care or treatment. This data will, therefore, be accessible and used by people all over the world.  

All information obtained from the BCN questionnaire remains under the responsibility of the individual applicant and is on an honour basis. Moreover, the Breast Units listed on the BCN website are not entitled to any accreditation or certification.  

By submitting the online form, you give authorisation to the Senologic International Society (SIS) to insert the data about the centre and its staff in the BCN directory and publications. Please understand that others will be able to view and use the data provided. You agree to regularly update all your centre's details.  

Modification and updates of the information submitted can take place at any time. 
Any questions regarding this website and its services may be addressed to Dr Leonardo Dias:
