Close to one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer. A lump or changes in the breast often are the first indications. That’s why one of the most important things a woman can do for herself and her family is to understand the importance of breast health and follow through with regular exams. Our medical centers and satellites provide highly effective digital mammography to diagnose breast abnormalities.
We have invested in the latest technology to treat breast cancer, and nurse navigators are there to provide compassionate guidance. Breast cancer survival increases exponentially with early detection. Family history is significant – tell your doctor if breast or ovarian cancers run in your family – but anyone, men included, can get breast cancer. Ask your doctor how often you should get a mammogram.
