A National Benchmark Program
Discovering a lump in your breast can be nothing short of terrifying. The last thing you need is a weeks-long wait to learn the cause.
Our Duke Cancer Institute-affiliated Breast Health Center reduces the anxiety and stress of such a discovery. Our nationally recognized Five-Day Detection to Diagnosis program provides a definitive answer within five days of detection. A patient with a lump is seen within 24 hours.
While most lumps aren’t cancerous, early detection of an abnormality offers a 90-percent chance the cancer can be controlled and sometimes even cured. The key is breast self examination. If you notice a change, help is a phone call away.
Early detection of breast cancer offers a 90 percent chance of successful control. So get that annual mammogram you’ve been putting off. Schedule an appointment now by calling (803) 791-2486.

The fight against cancer can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Our support group helps women coping with recurrent or metastatic breast cancer.
