|Early Detection and Regular Screenings
Breast cancer takes years to develop. Early in the disease, most cancers of the breast cause no symptoms. When breast cancer is detected early, before there are symptoms, the five-year survival rate is 97%. If the cancer has spread to lymph nodes (underarm) the rate drops to 76%. If it has spread to other organs such as the lungs, bone marrow, liver, or brain is present, the five-year survival rate is 20%.
Screening mammography is an x-ray examination of the breast in a woman who has no breast complaints. Screening mammography usually involves two views (x-ray pictures) of each breast. While many women have complained about the pain associated with mammography, at WDC our specially trained technicians and the equipment we use minimizes any discomfort.
Diagnostic mammograms (may include magnification, exaggerated views) and ultrasounds are available to provide additional diagnostic information. These services must be conducted in our office, because they require a Radiologist to be on-site in order to oversee your exam for an accurate diagnosis.
Our radiologist may meet with you to review your diagnostic films and answer any questions you may have.
