Monthly Self Exams, Annual Mammograms: Key To Early Detection

It is estimated that more than 240,000 women in the U.S. were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. It is now possible to detect most breast cancers at a very early state. With early detection and improved treatments more women are surviving breast cancer. Today, women  have more treatment options than ever.

Finding breast cancer early means that you have more treatment options and your chances of survival are better. Survival is greater if the cancer has not spread outside the breast when it is diagnosed. As an example, about 9 out of 10 women whose cancer is diagnosed before it has spread outside the breast will be alive five years later. However, if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body at diagnosis, only about 2 out of 10 women will be alive 5 years later.

We are excited to implement full field digital mammography to our arsenal of early detection tools, and we invite you to learn more about the advantages of this new technology. As healthcare providers, we want to be your partners in ongoing breast health through all stages of life. Being partners means you – and all the women in your life – need to take charge of your health … do monthly self exams, see your doctor if there is anything suspicious, and get a mammogram every year after age 40.

Putting it All Together
At Orange City Area Health System, we have a team in place to help empower women at all stages of life to take care of their breasts – from cancer prevention, to diagnosis, to treatment and support.

Mammography. If you’re over 40, the American Cancer Society recommends a screening mammogram every year for early detection of breast cancer. We make it easy, with extended mammogram hours … a quiet, private Women’s Imaging Center (complete with complimentary chocolates!) … and timely results by our board certified radiologists. And now, with a full field digital mammography system in place, you are assured of the best technology for early detection.

Breast biopsy. We perform ultrasound-guided biopsies for accurate diagnoses of suspicious tumors.

Surgery. Our skilled surgeons can perform both lumpectomies and mastectomies in our state-of-the-art “high tech, high touch” surgical center. Plus, we offer Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy during breast cancer surgery, a leading-edge procedure recently endorsed in a study by Memorial Sloan Kettering. Learn more about Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy here.

Chemotherapy. Breast cancer patients don’t have to travel to receive their chemotherapy. Our oncologists can prescribe therapy that is administered right here in our clinic by our caring nurses.

Support and asthetics. Kim Lyons-Weiland offers her “Beyond Pink” outreach clinic here at OCAHS so cancer patients can receive the pre- and post-surgery products, services, and support they need.

Physical and aquatic therapy. Following surgery, our therapists can work with patients who may be experiencing lymphedema, or swelling and stiffness.

At Orange City Area Health System, we have a team in place to help empower women at
all stages of life to take care of their breasts – from cancer prevention, to diagnosis, to
treatment and support. In October, we will host our first Breast Health Symposium, bringing together professionals, breast cancer patients and survivors, and others in a grassroots educational event that will be a special time for learning and relaxing. We encourage all women – and those who love them – to know their options for the best care from the healthcare provider you trust, close to home.
