How Do I Keep My Breasts Healthy?
Listen to your body and be proactive. Breast health starts with prevention. Breast self-exams and routine screenings are your first line of defense to keep your breasts healthy followed by a proactive approach to any abnormal tests or screenings with a quick follow-up.
Our doctors, nurses and staff members are your partners in breast care. Your breast health is important to you, so it’s important to us, too. Banner Health provides complete services, screenings and support to keep women and their breasts healthy at every stage of life.
What Breast Screenings Should I Have?
You may need help for a breast condition such as benign (noncancerous) pain, infection, inflammation, nipple discharge, cysts and lumps. Or you may have a test that screens for breast cancer.
