Early Detection is Your Best Protection
Regular screening mammography can often detect breast cancer long before it can be felt.
Experts at The Breast Center at Valley Medical Center believe that mammography remains the most effective, accessible tool for the detection of breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stages.
A mammogram is a low-dose x-ray that allows radiologists to look for changes in breast tissue. Valley Breast Center is proud to provide patients 3D screening mammography combined with 2D mammography as our standard of care.
The American College of Radiology, Society of Breast Imaging, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and American Society of Breast Surgeons recommend annual mammography screening starting at age 40 for average risk women. In fact, with early detection the average five year survival rate for breast cancer is close to 99%.
•A women’s chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime is 1 in 8.
•8 out of 9 diagnosed women have no family history of breast cancer.
•Research has shown early detection reduces breast cancer mortality by up to 44%
