Welcome to Breast Health, Imaging, & Procedures at Montrose Memorial Hospital. Whether your needs are a routine mammogram or for diagnostic imaging and procedures to help gain insight, we’re here to help you.
The most effective way to detect early signs of breast cancer and address other noncancerous breast conditions is to undergo routine preventative care including mammograms. Our team meets the highest standards for our patients while also providing them and their families support, comfort, and answers. You can ask questions and discuss concerns about your breast health comfortably and confidentially. To help you feel at home, we make every effort to accommodate requests for a specific technologist when scheduling your routine mammogram and other important breast exams and tests.
In today’s advanced medical environment, there is more hope than ever before for breast cancer patients. One of the keys is early detection; at Montrose Memorial Hospital, we can perform these routine screening and diagnostic tests with efficient procedures and highly trained staff.
Often, breast lumps are benign (noncancerous) and should simply be monitored. If a positive diagnosis is ever received, we are available for you throughout your treatment and recovery. We can also provide our patients with information about the local Bosom Buddies organization to help connect you with even more support in your journey back to great health.
