Like many kinds of cancer, a key to preventing and surviving breast cancer is early detection. It starts with self-exams every month, as well as regularly scheduled mammograms and physician breast exams. If you are 35, it is time to schedule your baseline mammogram, and if you are over 40, you should schedule a mammogram each year.
Choosing the right medical partner to help you maintain breast health is important. At Piedmont, our comprehensive team of experts - physicians, nurses and technologists - is sensitive to each patient's individual needs and have access to the latest technologies to quickly screen and diagnose our patients.
Our team delivers more than expertise - we take the time to make sure every patient is educated, informed, and above all, comfortable. If you do have a diagnosis that requires treatment, a breast cancer nurse navigator will be with you each step of the way.
