Breast Cancer Screening Services

Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women, and at Gwinnett Medical Center, we don't take that lightly. That's why, we offer a variety of education and resources designed to help you be proactive about your breast health. As is the case with most cancers and other diseases, routine screenings and early detection are the keys to protection.

Staying up-to-date on cancer screenings is important. Annual screening mammograms should begin at age 40 and continue every year after. Experts have found that by getting routine mammograms, the severity of breast cancer can be significantly reduced by detecting cancer early when treatment is more effective to save lives. In addition, by getting your regular screening mammogram, specialists are able to find and remove abnormal areas before they become cancer. If you are at a higher risk, talk with your doctor about additional or alternative screening tests that may be right for you. This can include tomosynthesis (tomo), a 3D mammogram that is more detailed and is significantly more likely to find more invasive cancers earlier, or a breast MRI.
