Your breast health is personal. You want to stay on top of your screenings, but even proactive prevention can cause anxiety. It’s easy to understand why. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States, and nearly one in eight women could develop some form of breast cancer in their lifetime.
Preventive screenings are the healthiest thing you can do for your breasts and your overall health. That’s why Providence offers comprehensive breast services and breast cancer treatment for women of all ages in one convenient location. We want to make it easy for you to get the state-of-the-art breast-related services you need from caring doctors and specialists — all in a comfortable, discreet setting.
Our comprehensive services begin with a breast care coordinator, who partners with you to answer your questions about breast health and offers breast cancer education and support. If your screenings show an issue, your breast care coordinator is there for you every step of the way.
Our services include:
- 3D mammograms (tomography)
- ABUS 3D breast ultrasounds
- Breast ultrasounds
- CT and PET/CT scans
- Diagnostic imaging
