Preventing Breast Disease
Preventing breast disease now and in the future is a key focus of the Columbus Regional Breast Care Center.
Our staff offers a variety of personalized training tools and methods to teach you how to perform monthly self-exams and get you started on your program for good breast health. And we’ll help by notifying you when your annual or periodic examinations are due.
At the Columbus Regional Breast Care Center, we will join with you in taking an active role in preventing breast disease by helping you put this simple, three-part plan into action.
A Breast Self-Examination (BSE) every month
We’ll show you how to perform this life-saving procedure and give you all the tools you need to make this a successful part of your monthly routine.
Routine physical examination with your doctor.
Making breast examinations part of your yearly gynecologic exam or routine physical makes good sense.
A regularly scheduled mammogram
This safe, low-dose X-ray can detect a lump too small to be felt. Every woman should have a baseline mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40, then every year after the age of 40.
