Breast Health

Who We Are and What We Do

Many women will develop breast problems at some point in their lives. Fortunately, most breast abnormalities are normal responses to common hormonal changes. But early detection of breast cancer means a 98 percent survival rate and gives women time to consider surgery and treatment alternatives.

The staff at Lee Health’s Breast Health Centers delivers comprehensive, compassionate care in your time of need.

We use a variety of breast examinations designed to provide the most accurate diagnosis possible at convenient locations. We give our patients peace of mind with innovative technology, board-certified physicians who specialize in breast health, and technologists certified in mammography and breast ultrasound.

What Patients Need to Know

It’s important to find breast cancer early, and that’s why the our Breast Health Centers use advanced technology for the most accurate diagnosis possible. 3D mammograms are quick, simple and highlight issues long before they can be felt during an examination. That means faster treatment and better peace of mind.

3D Mammography - Detects 41 percent more invasive breast cancers and reduces false positives by up to 40 percent

3D Stereotactic Breast Biopsy - The only 3D stereotactic breast biopsy unit in the area

Multidisciplinary Breast Clinic - New patients can meet their care providers all at one time

Take Assessment Now

The National Cancer Institute has developed a free risk assessment tool that allows women to discuss their own personal risk factors of developing breast cancer with their physician. Take the risk assessment today to better understand your chance.

More About the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment

This tool may not provide precise risk assessment for women with a medical history of breast cancer, DCIS, or LCIS. For those with known mutations in genes like BRCA1 or BRCA2, or other hereditary syndromes linked to increased breast cancer risks, alternative tools may offer better accuracy.

Quick Points about the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool:

  • While this tool can estimate a patient's risk accurately, it cannot predict precisely who will develop breast cancer. See Other Risk Assessment Tools for more information.
  • It's worth noting that some women with higher risk estimates may never develop breast cancer, while others with lower estimates may be diagnosed.
  • Designed primarily for healthcare professionals, it's advised that non-professionals print their results and discuss them with their provider.
  • The answers provided help estimate the absolute risk of developing invasive breast cancer over the next 5 years and up to age 90 (lifetime risk). Factors considered include the patient's personal medical and reproductive history, as well as the breast cancer history among their first-degree relatives. Additionally, the tool provides risk estimates for a woman of similar age and race/ethnicity who is at average risk for developing breast cancer, aiding in comparison and understanding.
