Breast Cancer Program

breast cancerThe American Cancer Society estimated there were 226, 870 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients for 2012.

While there are several signs and symptoms of breast cancer to watch for, the earliest signs are often detected on a mammogram. Annual mammograms are recommended for women at high risk starting at age 30 and at age 40 for all women. Self-breast exams are highly encouraged.

Parkland's Comprehensive Breast Program is designed to quickly detect breast diagnosis and uses the most advanced diagnostic equipment and state-of-the-art treatments. To care for Breast Cancer, our teams of physician experts work together with other trained specialists and support staff to provide you with the highest quality of care.

Parkland participates in National Breast Cancer studies and offers Genetic Counseling and Testing for patients with predisposing risk for developing cancer.
