Breast Health

Understanding Breast Health

Routine care is the best way to keep you and your breasts healthy. Although detecting breast cancer at its earliest stages is the main goal of routine breast care, benign conditions are often discovered through routine care.

Breast Tests & Procedures

High-quality screening mammography is the most effective tool available to doctors in detecting breast cancer before lumps can be felt or symptoms of cancer appear.

Common Breast Questions

Benign conditions that affect the breasts include cysts, fibroadenomas, breast infection or pain, and fibrocystic breast changes. Some of these conditions are associated with a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle.

About Breast Cancer

Any woman may develop breast cancer, but risk factors such as advancing age and family history may increase the likelihood of its occurrence.

Breast Cancer Treatment

Treatment can control the breast cancer and improve your quality of life by controlling symptoms of the disease. You and your doctor will discuss your treatment options and what’s best for you.
