Annual Breast Cancer Screenings
Some things can wait. Your annual mammogram can’t.
Early detection is the most effective way to beat cancer. That’s why we encourage you to schedule your annual mammogram as soon as possible. It can make all the difference because the earlier a cancer is diagnosed, the easier it is to cure and the more options you have for treatment.
No Time for Fear
The Comprehensive Breast Program includes dedicated genetic counselors who identify patients WITH developing breast and possible other cancers DUE To their personal and family history.
Certain inherited gene mutations can sometimes increase a woman’s risk to develop breast cancer up to 85% during her lifetime. A blood or saliva sample can examine if he/she has an inherited gene mutation that increases the risk of developing cancers. If an individual is found to have an inherited gene mutation, there is discussion about early detection and risk reduction strategies.
