Still need a reason to get your yearly
mammogram? Early detection can save your life.
You or your doctor may not discover early stage cancer through a lump or other noticeable changes in the breast. Mammography can detect breast cancer when it’s small and still confined to the breast, making treatment easier and prognosis better. If caught early, the five-year breast cancer survival rate is more than 90 percent.
UPMC CancerCenter — partner with the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute — and Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC collaborate in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of breast and gynecologic cancers.
As the pre-eminent cancer care and research facility in the region, we have pioneered some of the latest screening options for breast cancer, such as 3D mammography.
3D mammography technology:
- Improves imaging for those with dense breast tissue.
- Reduces the chances of screening patients having to come back for further imaging.
- Increases the accuracy of the mammogram in some diagnostic patients.
