Designed by breast-health professionals and women just like you, the Mercy Breast Center on the campus of Mercy Hospital St. Louis is devoted exclusively to breast care, diagnosis and treatment. Our breast health center is available to all women who need routine screenings or further diagnostic procedures and treatments. We ensure the most thorough assessment at our Breast Center in St. Louis, plus the convenience and peace of mind of coordinated care for diagnosis, treatment and counseling. On-site breast care capabilities and services include:
Our breast radiologists in St. Louis specialize in mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and minimally invasive biopsy techniques. Our oncology nurse navigators help guide you through your entire treatment process. The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms beginning at the age of 45. It's also important to start at around age 19 with self-breast exams on a monthly basis and yearly clinical breast exams by your doctor.
Mercy Breast Center offers 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography for women who are at high risk for breast cancer or who have dense breast tissue. If you have a history of breast cancer or someone in your family who has had breast cancer, be sure to ask for the 3D mammogram when you schedule your annual mammogram. It is available at this location on the Mercy Hospital campus and at the Mercy Breast Center at Clayton-Clarkson.
The 3D Tomosynthesis Mammogram can detect breast cancer at early stages because of all the images available to the radiologist. It also helps reduce the number of false positives for breast cancer, so women don't have to return for additional screening mammograms.
The nurse navigators at our St. Louis breast center are registered nurses with expertise in breast cancer detection and care. They provide guidance, education and support for our breast cancer patients, in addition to:
