Park Avenue Radiologists Celebrates National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

POSTED ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 03, 2011 AT 5:16 PM  by Dr. Marc Liebeskind

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness, spreading knowledge about the disease, and providing greater access to screening and early detection services.

At Park Avenue Radiologists, we are committed to joining in the fight against breast cancer by providing women with the most up-to-date screening options available. We offer mammography, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, breast MRI, and breast MRI biopsy in our state-of-the-art Manhattan radiology practice.

Regular breast screenings are an important part of the early detection of breast cancer. Health professionals agree that all women should perform self breast examinations every month and have a breast exam performed by their gynecologist or primary care physician at least once a year. Both the American Medical Association and the American College of Radiology also suggest yearly mammograms for women over the age of 40. While mammography is not a perfect study, it can help detect abnormalities in breast tissue that may indicate disease while it’s still in its early stages. Positive mammography results can be confirmed with additional testing.

This October, celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by taking control of your breast health. The best way to fight breast cancer is to detect it in its early stages. Contact your referring physician and request your screening at Park Avenue Radiologists today!
