The Truth About the Screening of
Breast Cancer In Atlanta

If you are looking for a mammogram in Atlanta, GA, look no further. Let’s review some very important facts about mammography screening of breast cancer before you make a decision. Mammography has been in existence for over 40 years. Statistics for women with breast cancer have increased from 1 in 20 in 1960 to 1 in 7 in some cities in the U.S in 2013. In addition to the pain of having your breasts tightly compressed between cold, hard glass plates, mammograms are x-rays. This is very important because radiation damages the cell’s DNA and DNA damage is accumulative so with each dose of radiation the effects will increase. One mammogram film has the same amount of ionizing radiation equal to 20 chest X-rays. When women go into an imaging center for a mammogram in Atlanta, Georgia they do not have just one mammogram film. Most women have at least three films per breast. Radiation causes cancer. With each mammogram you are increasing your risk of breast cancer by 1%. Mammography does not cover all the breast tissue either. Statistics state that 54% of all breast cancer tumors are found in the upper outer quadrant of the breast which is difficult to image with a mammogram… What about dense breast tissue and women with implants? Mammography cannot see through these types of breast conditions.

If you are looking for a place to have a mammogram in ATL, stop searching now and call OC Breast Wellness at (714) 363-5595. OC Breast Wellness has SureTouch, a pain-free breast examination with immediate results and no radiation. The SureTouch tactile sensor covers the entire breast and armpit areas as it maps the tissue looking for changes in elasticity. A breast cancer lesion will be very hard and irregular in shape unlike glandular tissue or other benign breast diseases. This type of screening of breast cancer has a much higher accuracy rate than a mammogram or even an MRI breast screening.

You have probably been told that an MRI of the breast can detect things that a mammogram cannot, and this is true, but SureTouch has the ability to locate lesions as small as 5mm at half the cost. Try SureTouch first.

Unlike a mammogram or MRI for breast cancer screening, there is no nervous waiting for results with SureTouch. The SureTouch system will print you a copy of the findings after the exam and you will have the peace of mind you need to be able to go about your active life in GA.

Did you discover a lump during a self-breast examination? SureTouch can locate lesions as small as 5mm, per the FDA clearance in 2003. This means SureTouch can locate suspicious lesions even earlier than an MRI for breast cancer screening can. OC Breast Wellness stores all videos of your breast tissue so that your doctor will have comparable records of your exams in order to monitor your breast health every year. This can result in more peace of mind for you. SureTouch breast exams are the solution women have long hoped for without radiation or pain. SureTouch is another option for women looking for mammograms in Atlanta. Call OC Breast Wellness today for a free consultation at (714) 363-5595.
