Breast Cancer Screening
Breast cancer, when diagnosed in it its earliest stages, is highly curable. That’s why early detection with screening mammography is so important. Women are urged to begin annual mammograms by age 40 to establish a baseline of a woman’s breast health and detect abnormalities early, when treatment is more effective. But not all breasts are created equal. Some require more detailed screening.
Our sophisticated breast imaging equipment and novel techniques can help reduce call backs, spot abnormalities early, and reduce the number of follow-up tests for suspicious findings—even in dense breasts, which are the most difficult to screen. Most of our advanced breast screening services are conveniently located at CMC’s Breast Care Center.
At the Breast Care Center, your care continues with our fellowship-trained breast surgeon, who specializes in breast conservation, nipple-sparing mastectomy and "oncoplastic" surgery.
