Our breast health program
HCA Florida Physicians is passionate about preventive care. For this reason, the providers at our women's care practices can help you with manual breast exams as well as scheduling yearly mammogram screenings.
Preventive breast care
Mammogram screenings are an essential step in preventive breast care because they allow signs of breast cancer to be identified early. We recommend annual breast cancer screenings for women between 40 and 74 years old with an average risk of breast cancer.
However, it is important to discuss your individual risk for breast cancer with your primary care provider. If you are at an increased risk, due to family history or other factors, your provider may suggest you begin screenings sooner.
We partner with HCA Florida hospitals all across the state to offer convenient screening mammograms.
