Breast Cancer Care Close to Home
Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women and many of members of our Quad Cities community know first-hand the overwhelming challenges and rewards of fighting breast cancer. Most of us have watched sisters, aunts, mothers, daughters and friends battle this illness. While much is known about breast cancer already, its prevalence is what makes it one of the most feared cancers.
Should you or a loved one ever find yourself in the fight against breast cancer, the team at Trinity wants to take as much fear out of the situation as possible. We know that you want expert care, rapid diagnosis and treatment and access to the latest in breast cancer technology and research.
Early Detection and Rapid Treatment
We believe in early detection and screening, starting with our online Breast CancerAware assessment and our certified "Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence" as designated by the American College of Radiology.
Our full spectrum of services includes everything needed to accurately diagnose and treat breast cancer - from the latest cancer research to procedures like mammograms, MRIs, chemotherapy, radiation and breast surgery.
Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines
Women aged 40-49: Begin mammogram screening at age 40 and continue annually. Consult with your doctor about your individual risk factors and when to start screening.
Women aged 50-64: Screening may be done every two years as compared to annually.
Women 65 and older: Continue mammograms every two years through age 74. After age 75, discuss with your doctor about screening.
All women: Discuss your personal health history with your doctor to determine the best tests and timing for your scheduled screening.
