Multidisciplinary Team. Innovation and Expertise. Treating Breast Cancer as Effectively as Possible.

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. 

Advanced Breast Cancer Screening Options

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:

  • 3-D mammography screening (tomosynthesis)
  • Diagnostic breast ultrasounds
  • Automated breast ultrasounds (ABUS)
  • Breast MRIs for high-risk patients

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. 

Recognizing Breast Cancer Symptoms

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. 

Watching for signs of breast cancer is important so that you can get help if you need it. Be familiar with your body and do not ignore the following signs:

  • Lump, hard knot or thickening inside the breast or underarm 
  • Swelling, warmth, redness or darkening of the breast 
  • Change in the size or shape of the breast 
  • Dimpling or pulling in of the skin or nipple 
  • Itchy or scaly rash on the nipple 
  • Bloody nipple discharge 
  • New pain in one spot that does not go away 

Call your doctor if you find anything unusual.
