More Than Mammograms

Women should get to know how their breasts normally look and feel. Doing this can help you notice any changes more easily. Routine breast care can help find cancer and noncancerous conditions.

Your health is our priority. Make it yours, too.

At Woman’s Hospital, women’s health is our priority. We know it’s our job to keep you healthy and on top of your game, so you can take care of everyone you love.

Be healthy and proactive in three ways

Caring for your breasts means more than just getting an annual mammogram (though this is an important step, starting at age 40). It also means eating a cancer-fighting diet, limiting alcohol, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight.

Why is a mammogram important?

Women who catch their breast cancer early are far more likely to survive. Make your health a priority, because early detection can save your life. Woman’s offers the most comprehensive detection tools. 3D mammography may be beneficial for women with a personal history or high risk of breast cancer, and for women with dense breast tissue. 

Other Breast Imaging Methods

From MRIs to image-guided biopsies, we offer a variety of breast imaging options to ensure accurate results.

    Be Breast Aware

    Notice how the breasts and nipples looks or feels. Signs and symptoms may not be due to cancer, but any breast changes or lumps you notice should be investigated as soon as it is discovered.
