Where to Go for Breast Cancer Tests and Treatment

Although breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, breast cancer screening can significantly improve your chances of recovery. In fact, the American Cancer Society estimates that screening mammograms can reduce breast cancer deaths by approximately 20% to 40%.

Recommendations from expert groups vary on when to get mammograms and how often:

  • The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends testing every two years beginning at age 50.
  • The American Cancer Society suggests breast cancer screening every year for women ages 45 to 54; and every other year for women ages 55 and older.

Your doctor will determine the schedule that is best for you, based on your age, medical and family history and other personal risk factors to determine when screening is best.

No matter what routine screening schedule your doctor recommends, it’s essential that you stick to it. When you choose the Breast Health Center at Loma Linda University Health, you have found a center where you can get your mammogram and return for any additional tests and treatment, if needed.

Loma Linda's breast cancer program has cutting-edge medical services, and also the compassionate care and support you deserve.

We Provide Additional Breast Cancer Tests

If your mammogram has abnormal findings, you will need to return for a diagnostic mammogram—a more detailed version of your screening mammogram. Your doctor may also recommend a breast MRI and/or breast ultrasound, which can provide further information to help with diagnosis. If breast cancer is suspected, a breast biopsy is used to collect tissue for analysis.

Keep in mind, getting called back for a suspicious finding on your breast cancer screening does not mean you have breast cancer. In fact, additional screening is common.

Loma Linda’s Breast Health Center offers the full gamut of diagnostic services. This includes breast ultrasound as well as breast MRI. The Breast Health Center is also the first facility in the Inland Empire to offer non-invasive breast MRIs to diagnose and biopsy breast cancer.

We Have a Breadth of Breast Cancer Treatment Options

The Breast Health Center at Loma Linda University Cancer Center offers a wide range of cutting-edge services in one location, including:

  • Surgery
  • Medical oncology
  • Reconstruction surgery
  • Radiation medicine

Loma Linda’s breast cancer surgeons perform nipple-sparing breast surgery, Magseed localization—which uses new implant technology to precisely locate a tumor within the breast for surgical accuracy without the need for a wire, and mastectomy with immediate reconstruction.

Our breast cancer hospital is also one of the few centers in the United States that offers proton therapy for breast cancer patients. This noninvasive and painless therapy is more accurate than any other form of radiation beam therapy available today for early-stage breast cancer.

Multidisciplinary Care for Breast Cancer

Loma Linda University Cancer Center’s Breast Health Center specialists come together to provide you the very best care possible. From the time of diagnosis, our nurse navigators help answer questions and guide patients through every step of treatment and recovery. Along with the nurse navigators, our team includes:

  • Breast surgeons
  • Medical oncologists
  • Radiation oncologists
  • Pathologists
  • Genetic counselors

At Loma Linda, our experts come together to review and discuss the unique case of every breast cancer patient. They then collaborate on a customized treatment plan that is focused on the patient’s unique needs and goals. This level of comprehensive, multidisciplinary care offers peace of mind that your treatment plan is carefully planned with all experts involved and tailored specifically for you.

Patient navigators are registered nurses trained in oncology care to guide you through the challenges of dealing with cancer. They are here to support you as you go through diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Contact the Patient Navigator team at 800-782-2623.
