What Is Breast Health?

Breast health is unique to each individual women. To better understand what breast health means to you, start with a sense of what is normal for your breasts and perform regular self breast exams.

For many women, breast health includes concerns about breast lumps, nipple pain or discharge. Know what is normal for your breasts and when to consult your doctor.

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.

Infirmary Health Breast Centers

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.

Our breast centers are based at Mobile Infirmary and Thomas Hospital but offer mammography services at numerous locations across the Gulf Coast including:

  • 2D & 3D Mammography
  • 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 - an 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. The following locations also utilize Genius 3D Mammography technology to examine complex breast tissue to ensure that no cancer is undiagnosed:

  • The Breast Center at Mobile Infirmary
  • The Breast Center at Thomas Hospital
  • North Baldwin Infirmary Imaging Center
  • Infirmary Imaging | Saraland
  • Infirmary Imaging | Hillcrest
  • Thomas Medical Center

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.
