Breast Health 

 

Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women. Early detection helps the chances for rapid and successful treatment. We are happy to announce Huntsville Memorial Hospital has opened the Huntsville Women's Center. This beautiful facility is dedicated to creating a comfortable environment for women in our area to receive women's health services. Our facility is located behind the hospital in the “Copper Top” buildings in Suite 123.

 

Appointments may be made by calling: 936-439-4826.

 

3D / TOMO Mammography 

One of the most exciting things offered in our facility is 3-D/TOMO mammograms, which may provide a more accurate picture of a woman's breast health than

traditional mammograms. Conventional mammography takes images of the breasts from two angles.  In contrast, the 3-D scanner moves in an arc over the breasts, taking images from
 various angles, which improves doctors' ability to spot small tumors and reduce false scares.

 

According to the American Cancer Society, women over the age of 40 should receive a yearly screening mammogram and conduct monthly self-exams in between. 

 

In addition to 3-D/TOMO mammograms, the Women's Center will be offering ultrasound and Dexa scans.
