Breast Center

Infirmary Health’s Breast Centers at Mobile Infirmary and Thomas Hospital provide full-service breast care services for detection, prevention and treatment of all breast related diseases.

What Is Breast Care?

Breast care centers seek to provide comprehensive breast care services to women.

Problems that can regularly affect breast health include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Duct blockage
  • Cysts
  • Fibroadenoma
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Intraductal papilloma
  • Mastitis
  • Breast Calcifications

The purpose of breast health centers is to provide comprehensive care to women to ensure that their breasts remain healthy and that no minor versions of these conditions turn into serious breast cancer.

What We Provide

Infirmary Health’s Breast Centers at Mobile Infirmary and Thomas Hospital provide a wide variety of services to detect and treat breast cancer and other conditions.

Based in these two locations but offering mammography services at numerous locations across the Gulf Coast our Breast Center screening services include:

  • Mammograms
  • Breast biopsies
  • Cyst aspiration
  • Galactogram
  • High-definition ultrasound

Mammography

Mammograms are designed to use small amounts of radiation to examine the inside of the breast and ensure no cancer is present. Our mammograms are conducted by trained radiologists who will analyze the results and then consult with the patients in diagnostic situations.

Our mammogram team has received the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence award for our mammography work. With state-of-the-art technology and a team of specialists, Infirmary Health has worked hard to build a mammography team that can meet the needs of all women.

With almost 40% of women having dense breasts (less fat and more tissue) and mammograms alone may not always work to identify breast cancer. However, our mammographers used the Invenia ABUS 2.0 - the sole FDA approved mammography system for women with dense breasts to ensure that their breasts are properly screened. Instead of using radiation, this state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to screen the entire breast. Thomas Hospital and Mobile Infirmary also use the Genius 3D Mammography technology to examine complex breast tissue to ensure that no cancer is undiagnosed.

Other Services

Also available at our Breast Centers is education information about breast cancer, ways to treat it and after treatment care. This education along with the advice of our physicians is supposed to provide the women with all of the resources she needs to formulate a comprehensive breast care plan.
