At MetroHealth, we offer advanced screening tools, and our multidisciplinary team has the innovation and expertise to treat breast cancer as effectively as possible.
Our community programs offer free screening, education and support for all women.
MetroHealth is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology's Commission on Quality and Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging, and offers screenings in six convenient locations as well as a mobile coach.
Our advanced technology is designed to detect breast cancer as early as possible:
We use the most innovative tools to find out exactly what's going on, including stereotactic core biopsy and ultrasound- and MRI-guided core biopsy. For example, if a small tumor is detected, we use radiofrequency seed placement to ensure accuracy for the surgeon during a biopsy.
The best way to detect breast cancer early is through a mammogram. A mammogram can catch abnormal tissue you might not be able to see or feel, and it might spot tumors that aren't big enough to detect on your own.

Call your doctor if you find anything unusual.

BREAST program services are available to low-income women over age 35 who live in Cuyahoga County and haven't had a mammogram in at least a year. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call 216-778-8557.
