Breast cancer affects one in eight American women in their lifetime. The Guthrie Breast Cancer Program helps our patients navigate through breast cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
Symptoms of breast cancer can include:
- Nipple discharge
- Skin changes
Catching breast cancer in early stages, often before there are symptoms, through regular annual screening gives women the best chance of beating breast cancer. Mammography is the best screening method for most women. For women at higher risk, other types of screening and more frequent screening may be appropriate.
Call 1-866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743) to schedule a screening mammogram.
High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic
Certain factors put some women at a high risk for breast cancer. Breast specialists at Guthrie’s High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic help women assess their risk, plan the right types and frequency of screenings, and learn preventative measures. We also provide ongoing care and follow-up with a breast specialist.
When to Call a Breast Cancer Specialist
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, talk to your primary care provider about your concerns. Or make an appointment with our breast specialist by calling 570-887-2850.
If a diagnostic evaluation is required, we help you schedule the next steps. You may need further imaging or a biopsy. Most biopsies can be done minimally invasively by a radiologist. Your evaluation may also include an appointment with a breast surgeon who will review results and help you develop a plan of care.
