Breast Cancer 

While breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among women - roughly 12 percent of women will be diagnosed during their lifetime - more women today are surviving a breast cancer diagnosis. Women should follow screening recommendations and guidelines set by their doctor.  Breast cancer screenings, imaging and diagnostics include:

•  3-D and digital mammography
•  Stereotactic breast biopsy 

Gynecologic Cancers 

More than 70,000 women are diagnosed annually with gynecologic cancer - cancer that begins in a woman’s reproductive system. The most common types are uterine, ovarian, cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers. 

Only cervical cancer can be screened at this time. It is vital that women pay attention to any possible gynecologic cancer symptoms they may experience. Treatment outcomes often depend on how early cancer is detected and whether it has spread to other parts of the body.
