breast health &mammography

overview

At Aurora, we strive to make our breast health services as convenient and easy as possible, so you'll feel comfortable seeking regular preventive and follow-up care. 

Many of our breast care centers are accredited by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers (NAPBC). This means Aurora Health Care's breast centers have met or exceeded quality standards established by the NAPBC.

If you receive a breast cancer diagnosis, we’ll make sure you have answers and support – and that you are not alone. We do that by providing a personal cancer nurse navigator – a specially trained registered nurse who will provide support, coordinate your care, answer questions and help ensure that all your concerns are addressed.

screenings

Our providers recommend the following breast cancer screenings for women at average risk for breast cancer:

Breast self-awareness: We encourage you to develop a general awareness of how your breasts look and feel and to report any changes to your doctor. Changes could be a new lump or mass, skin dimpling, swelling or redness or abnormal nipple discharge.

Clinical breast exam: An annual breast exam by a doctor or other qualified health care provider is recommended beginning at age 40.

Mammography: Aurora recommends average risk women have mammography at least every two years beginning at age 40. If you’re at high risk for breast cancer (for example, you have a family history), you may need mammograms starting at an earlier age and more often. 

Genetic counseling: Women thought to be at higher risk of developing breast cancer may benefit from a consultation with a genetic counselor.

advanced screenings

If you have known genetic mutations associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, or a history of radiation therapy to the chest, talk with your doctor to formulate a health plan including earlier and more intensive screening. 

Breast imaging: Includes mammography, ultrasonography and breast MRI

Breast biopsy: A radiologist or surgeon samples a portion or all of the suspicious tissue. 

Breast MRI: MRI can be used if you have a hereditary risk of developing breast cancer or if you have dense breasts or scar tissue. Breast MRI is also helpful in determining the extent, size and distribution of newly diagnosed breast cancer.

If you or a loved one has a concern related to breast cancer or are at high risk to develop breast cancer, please contact a comprehensive breast care center, shown below.
