With every type of cancer, early detection provides the best chance for a cure.
Doctors can often detect breast cancer before the disease has spread to other structures. Even if it has spread, quick detection increases the chance of long-term survival.
People can perform the most basic breast cancer screening on their own: a breast self-exam. Done monthly, breast self-exam can reveal small lumps.
A yearly clinical breast exam and regularly scheduled mammograms in middle age can often detect breast cancer in its earliest stages.
UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and Magee-Womens Hospital offer an array of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services.
We want to make sure that people at risk for breast cancer have every chance to take part in prevention efforts.
