Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths (after lung cancer) in women today. The American Cancer Society predicts more than 232,570 new cases will be diagnosed in 2014. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. However, breast cancer death rates are going down as a result of early cancer detection and improved treatment. Right now there are more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

Saint Anthony’s Women’s Imaging Center is the only facility in the River Bend that has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

For information on Breast Health Services or to make an appointment for a mammogram, please call 618-474-6152.
