This state-of-the-art technology offers advantages to patients and physicians alike, with shorter exam times and images that can display breast abnormalities at an earlier stage.
Jane Phillips Medical Center provides comprehensive imaging examinations of the breast, including digital mammography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and MRI. Primarily, the center offers screening and diagnostic mammography examinations. These low-dose breast X-rays are capable of identifying the site of breast cancer early in its developmental stages, long before a lump can be felt.
Monthly breast self-examination is a life-saving routine that allows women to detect breast changes early and seek medical intervention. We provide self-examination instruction at no charge.
All women are at risk for developing breast cancer, but some factors can increase the likelihood of developing the disease. Risk factors include a family history of cancer, a long menstrual life (early onset of menstruation and late menopause), not bearing children, having a first child after age 30 and chronic benign breast problems. Having any or all of these risk factors does not mean you will develop breast cancer; however, women should be proactive in seeing early signs of the disease.
