THE BREAST HEALTH CENTERS

The Breast Health Centers offer a variety of breast examinations designed to provide the most accurate diagnosis possible. You will receive quality care in compassionate, professional surroundings at Cape Coral Hospital, HealthPark Commons Outpatient Center and The Sanctuary Outpatient Center.

At some point in their lives, many women will develop breast problems. Fortunately, most breast abnormalities, such as fibrocystic changes and benign tumors, are the response of normal breast tissue to common hormonal changes in the body.

Therefore, the discovery of a lump in your breast is cause for medical evaluation...not alarm. Although the American Cancer Society's recent survey shows that one out of nine women in the U.S. develop breast cancer, there is hope for this special group of women. Early detection of breast cancer means a 98 percent survival rate. In addition, early detection offers women time to consider surgery and treatment alternatives.

REASONS TO VISIT OUR CENTERS

Why would a woman schedule an appointment with us?

  • Your doctor has determined that you need a baseline screening examination because of your age or a family history of breast disease.
     
  • You or your doctor have found a lump in your breast that needs closer examination.
     
  • You are returning for follow-up of a prior screening or surgery.
     
  • Your breasts are tender or painful and you want to know why.

Whatever the reason for your visit, the Breast Health Centers offer a variety of breast examinations by physicians and technologists trained to provide the most accurate diagnosis possible.

A Thorough Approach
We use various techniques for examining and imaging your breasts. Since no single technique is 100 percent accurate in detecting potential problems, one procedure or a combination of procedures may be used according to each woman's individual needs.
