At some point in their lives, many women will develop breast
problems. Fortunately, most breast abnormalities, such as
fibrocystic changes and benign tumors, are the response of normal
breast tissue to common hormonal changes in the body.
Therefore, the discovery of a lump in your breast is cause for
medical evaluation...not alarm. Although the American Cancer
Society's recent survey shows that one out of
nine women in the U.S.
develop breast cancer, there is hope for this special group of
women. Early detection of breast cancer means a 98 percent survival
addition, early detection offers women time to consider surgery and
treatment alternatives. REASONS TO VISIT OUR CENTERS
