Trusted Care for
Your Breast Health

From preventive care with mammograms to expert treatment for breast cancer and beyond, we’re here to guide every step of your breast health journey.

Supporting You From Prevention to Recovery

When it comes to your breast health, you’re the expert on your body. If you notice something that’s not normal for you, don’t wait to reach out to our team for the answers you need. 

Because with breast cancer, prevention is essential — and screening is key. Screening mammograms can detect breast cancer early, when it’s easiest to treat. Our imaging specialists also have advanced training and expertise in detecting subtle differences between tissues to pinpoint areas of concern. 

On our campus, the Edna Owens Breast Center delivers personalized treatment and comprehensive care. It serves the community as a one-stop, patient-focused center for the rapid diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of breast diseases. The center is designed to be both beautiful and convenient, bringing together a wide range of women’s services, from screenings and consultations to treatment and procedures.

Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer affecting women in the U.S. The good news is that with advances in methods of detection and treatment, many women can, and do, beat breast cancer.

Our team will give you the information and resources you need to meet the challenge of a breast cancer diagnosis with confidence, dignity and hope. This guide will help you understand some of the most common questions about breast cancer, such as:  

  • What are the causes and risk factors of breast cancer?
  • What are the warning signs of breast cancer?
  • How is breast cancer diagnosed?
  • What are the latest and most advanced breast cancer treatments available?

One-On-One Support

Your designated breast nurse navigator will be by your side every step of the way, answering your questions and helping you schedule appointments with your doctors and specialists. They are advocates for your care, working as your points of contact for diagnosis, support, second opinions, symptom management and your ongoing education. After your treatment, our team will also provide you with the counseling, nutritional guidance, mentoring and support you’ll need to live life to its fullest.

Strategies for Breast Cancer Prevention

Since breast cancer is a genetic disease that can arise at any phase of life, there is no one way to prevent it. However, you can take some important steps to decrease your risk and catch symptoms early.

Here are some simple ways to lower your risk of developing breast cancer:

  • Avoid smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol
  • Consider medication and surgery as preventive measures if you’re at high risk
  • Eat a diet rich in healthy foods, like fruit and vegetables
  • Exercise and maintain a healthy weight
  • Talk to your doctor about how often you should get screened based on your unique risk factors
