Breast cancer is the most common (non-skin) cancer among women. According to the American Cancer Society, the chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is about 1 in 8 (13% of women).
Roper St. Francis takes your breast health seriously and realizes the value of early detection. Early detection is the best way to find breast cancer in its earliest, most curable stages. Roper St. Francis Cancer Care provides a full continuum of breast health services, ranging from educational programs on breast cancer risk and prevention to state-of-the-art diagnostic and early detection programs, including mammography.
What is digital mammography?
This exciting technology has been proven to improve breast cancer detection in many patients. With digital mammograms, the same images are obtained with the breast in compression, however the digital images allow for improved efficiency, immediate review of images, computer manipulation of images and digital computer storage of data.
Who needs a mammogram?
The American Cancer Society recommends all women age 40 or older have a mammogram once a year. Women at increased risk (for example, previous breast cancer, family history of breast cancer) should talk with their doctors about the benefits of starting mammography screening earlier or having more frequent exams.
