Breast Disease Diagnosis & Breast Cancer Screening Program
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women, representing approximately 14 percent of all new cancer cases in the United States. Treatments for breast cancer have significantly advanced and survival rates have steadily improved since the 1990s. Early detection has contributed greatly.
There is conflicting information available concerning breast self-exams. On the one hand, research shows that breast cancer survival has not improved whether or not women perform a self-exam. However, healthcare professionals emphasize that there is value in conducting a regular breast self-exam in order to help identify breast cancer in its early stages.
What’s Normal and What’s Not
There is no “normal” or “standard” breast among women. Breasts differ in size, shape and density, and often one breast will be slightly different from its pair. Pregnancy as well as monthly cycles can change the size and tenderness of your breasts. If you have any concerns, share them with your healthcare provider.
Breast Cancer Screening
The goal of all cancer screenings is to help identify cancer in an early stage. In the case of breast cancer screenings, women over 40 years old should have a mammogram and clinical breast exam conducted annually. Women ages 20-39 should have a clinical breast exam conducted every three years.
At Sky Ridge, we use leading-edge technology to produce the most accurate images possible. All scans are read by sub-specialty, board-certified radiologists (doctors who specialize in understanding images of the body) who specialize in breast disease diagnosis. We partner with the Invision/Sally Jobe Breast Network to provide diagnostic mammography and other breast imaging tests.
