Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Fibrocystic breast disease is characterized by nonmalignant lumps and/or pain in
More women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer every year than
with any other cancer except skin cancer. Many lives can be saved by early diagnosis.
An ultrasound scan detects breast changes by sending high-frequency sound waves
into the breast. It is a reliable tool when used in conjunction with mammography.
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. It is the best way to reveal tumors that
are too small to be felt. Mammograms can also show other changes in the breast that
doctors believe may suggest cancer.
Getting Regular Mammograms
Doctors recommend routine mammograms because they are the best tools for finding
breast cancer early and early detection is the best weapon for fighting breast
cancer. Regular mammograms, along with routine breast exams by a healthcare professional
and monthly breast self-exams, can reduce deaths from breast cancer among women age
40 or older. While this is true, remember that mammography is not 100-percent perfect.
Beginning at age 40, you should have a mammogram annually.
The Breast Care Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
