Breast Care

USA Health provides expert breast care for women in every stage of life.

Breast Care at USA Health

Breast development occurs in distinct stages throughout a woman's life, first before birth, and again at puberty and during the childbearing years. Changes also occur to the breasts during menstruation and when a woman reaches menopause.

USA Health provides expert breast care for women, including routine exams, screening and diagnostic mammograms, the region’s most advanced care for breast cancer and a full range of breast surgical procedures.

Breast Cancer

At USA Health, medical and radiation oncologists, hematologists, surgeons and other cancer specialists work together to provide diagnosis, staging, surgery and advanced breast cancer treatment options to our patients.

As an academic medical center, USA Health offers continuous research, clinical trials, education of our medical staff, and programs promoting cancer control and prevention. We see the most complex, difficult and challenging cases on a daily basis, which puts us in a position to provide the most advanced and appropriate course of treatment for each patient.

We create multidisciplinary support teams to help guide breast cancer patients and their families through their care journey. Our comprehensive care include social and financial services, psychological care, nutritional counseling, chaplains, physical therapy, support groups and more.

Breast Surgery

Our board-certified surgeons perform a full range of breast procedures including augmentation, reduction and reconstruction. Learn more about breast surgery.

Mammograms

We use the most advanced technology to perform yearly screening mammograms as well as diagnostic and 3D mammograms. These are important tools in the early detection of breast cancer. Learn more about mammography.

Routine Exams

Your USA Health gynecologist will perform a breast exam as part of your annual visit. This is an important part of your visit, since your doctor will be able to notice any changes in your breasts from year to year.

Breast Care Center at USA Health

The USA Children's & Women's Hospital Breast Care Center is located in Strada Patient Care Center.

We give our mammogram patients quick, convenient and thorough treatment. We provide our patients with a report from the reading radiologist before they leave—there is no waiting for a phone call hours or days later. And if more treatment is needed, we contact your physician promptly with our recommendations.

Our Selenia digital mammography system has the capability to detect breast cancer earlier in more women than the film mammography at many hospitals. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, and digital mammography provides an important tool for early detection, which is the best hope for treatment and recovery.
