Breast Lifecare

Helping you find answers quickly

Whether you found a lump as result of breast self-exam, mammogram or physician’s clinical exam, the sense of urgency remains the same. You want answers and test results quickly with few delays. That’s why we developed Breast Lifecare. Our radiologists and surgeons work as a team to provide as much information as possible in as few visits as possible to minimize the stress caused by multiple appointments and waiting.

During a Breast Lifecare visit, you will have a consult with a breast surgeon. The breast surgeon will review your imaging with the breast radiologist. He will then discuss your plan of care with you. If a breast biopsy is recommended, it can be done the same day under most circumstances.

Your doctor may refer you to Breast Lifecare as result of any of the following:

  • Breast lumps
  • Nipple discharge
  • Inverted nipple
  • Skin changes such as rash, dimpling, or redness
  • Positive finding on mammography, ultrasound, and/or MRI
  • Follow-up to a positive finding
  • Previous breast cancer surgery

You may need additional tests, which could include digital mammography, ultrasound or minimally-invasive biopsy. Most often, we can conduct these tests during your first appointment, eliminating the need for additional appointments.

Our team focuses on ensuring your comfort while delivering care in a compassionate, soothing, respectful atmosphere. With a state-of-the-art facility that features the latest technology, we take pride in providing you the best care, advice and treatment.
