Individualized Breast Screening Program
What is the right test for you?
If you’re 40 or older, yearly screening mammograms are an essential part of your health care. However, some women may benefit from additional breast screening to supplement mammography. If at any time, you find a lump, dimple, or notice nipple discharge, see your doctor as soon as possible. Breast self-awareness is the best way to discover changes in your breasts.
St. Luke’s tailors breast screening based on individual risk factors, to develop an individualized screening program, resulting in earlier detection of breast cancer. A combination of carefully chosen screening exams may lead to a significant increase in early cancer detection while decreasing the amount of unnecessary return visits and biopsies. St. Luke’s only uses state-of-the-art digital breast imaging technologies.
Should you require further evaluation, St. Luke’s Regional Breast Center has certified breast health nurse navigators to provide education and support you through your diagnostic exam, breast biopsy and diagnosis. Should you require breast surgery, oncology nurse navigators will support you through this process and provide post-surgical and follow-up care.
Mammography services are available at the following locations.
