Comprehensive Breast Care Services

From prevention and screening to diagnosis, treatment and wellness, breast specialists at Piedmont Cancer give patients access to the personalized care they need. We believe the best approach to beating breast cancer is to lower the risk of developing the disease.
 

Lowering Cancer Risk through Prevention

The American Cancer Society lists several steps you can take to lower your risk of breast cancer. These lifestyle changes include:

  • Regular, intentional physical activity
  • Reduced intake of calories
  • Limited alcohol intake
     

Monthly Self Examination

Conducting a self-exam each month will help women to take a proactive approach to knowing your body and more quickly identifying any changes. For information about breast self-exams, read more about breast health at Piedmont. If you have any questions or concerns, contact a breast health specialist at Piedmont to report any findings or changes to your doctor.
 

Annual Clinical Examination

An annual breast examination by your doctor is an important part of a yearly physical examination. For an appointment with a primary care doctor or gynecologist near you, call 678-309-5690 (primary care only) or use our convenient Find a Doctor search.
 

Early Detection through Mammography

Mammography uses low dose x-rays to look for abnormalities in breast tissue that could indicate the presence of breast cancer. Piedmont Cancer provides the most advanced imaging technology.

At Piedmont, while we support annual mammograms starting at age 40, we recommend a personalized approach to mammogram screening recommendations.

After reviewing your individual health and specific risk factors, our specialists will determine when an initial and follow-up mammograms should be scheduled.

Consult with your primary care doctor at 678-309-5690 to determine your personal guidelines for mammogram scheduling.
