Breast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. In fact, one in eight U.S. women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s why education, screening and state-of-the-art breast cancer treatment is so important. Mayo Clinic Health System is committed to partnering with you on your breast care journey and providing the best breast care available.
Our breast care services include modern screening and diagnostic mammography, breast biopsy and diagnostic ultrasound. If the radiologist detects something abnormal in your mammogram, we can complete a second exam, or a biopsy can be done. Once our team completes the pathology (lab work) for the biopsy, a surgeon can meet with you within a short period of time.
If you've received a breast cancer diagnosis, you may be feeling a wide range of emotions. Mayo Clinic Health System will help you and your family through every step of the journey — physically, emotionally and spiritually. We bring the knowledge of hundreds of Mayo Clinic cancer specialists — and the experience of treating more than a million patients — to you.
We specialize in providing numerous advanced cancer treatment programs, close to home, and offer numerous supportive services including, chaplain and social services, nutrition care and a support group. Visit the Oncology page to learn about our oncology team, specialized cancer treatments and more.
