Breast Cancer Care Close to Home
Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women and many members of our Quad Cities and Muscatine communities know first-hand the overwhelming challenges and rewards of fighting breast cancer. Many of us have watched sisters, aunts, mothers, daughters and friends battle this illness.
Should you or a loved one ever find yourself in the fight against breast cancer, the team at UnityPoint Health wants to take as much fear out of the situation as possible. We know you want expert care, rapid diagnosis and treatment, and access to the latest in breast cancer technology and research. You'll find all of that and more, close to home, at the UnityPoint Health – Trinity Cancer Center.

We offer a full continuum of breast cancer care under one roof – offering you the comprehensive care you need in one convenient location.
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.
Women who are at high-risk for developing cancer due to their family history or genetic make-up, should contact our High-Risk Breast Program at (309) 779-5080.
