Every woman must play an active role in taking care of her health with exercise, good nutrition, and regular check-ups by a physician. In combination with your physician's expertise, knowledge of your own body can provide important information if and when physical changes occur. By performing routine self-breast exams, you will be better equipped to notice any changes in your breast health. That's why we offer free self-breast examination clinics and free breast cancer screenings throughout the year.
We highly recommend that you know your personal risk for breast cancer. If you have a family history of breast cancer or a personal history of breast health disease, you may be at a higher risk for this disease. With early detection, over 90% of breast cancer diagnoses are treatable and curable. If you are at a higher risk for breast cancer, speak with your physician—he may recommend that you start regular mammogram screenings earlier or more frequently. If you are interested in receiving a free breast cancer risk assessment, call the Breast Health Center to set up an appointment with our Breast Health Liaison, Mary Beth Revak.
At the Breast Health Center, we have an extensive lending library, which provides a wide variety of up-to-date information on women's health issues. We have created and tailored this collection of literature to meet the specific and individualized needs of our patients in our community who are facing any number of breast diseases.
