The Lourdes Breast Care Center is located on the main floor of the DePaul Pavilion at Lourdes Hospital. We offer a complete range of imaging services, including on-site digital mammography, ultrasonography, galactograms, and evaluation by board-certified radiologists. Our on-site diagnostic procedures include fine-needle aspirations, stereotactic core and mammotome biopsies, needle localization, and excisional biopsies.
Our Lymphedema Program features an expert who provides individualized and group consultation, education, and referral for complete decongestive therapy.
Early detection of breast cancer ensures long-term survival and the use of less invasive surgery during treatment. Monthly self-examinations, annual clinical evaluations, and yearly sequential mammograms form the basis of this effort. Free clinical breast exams for women who are asymptomatic are available on Thursday afternoons at the Breast Care Center as well as no-cost or low-cost mammograms for income-eligible women. Our participation in the Cancer Services Program of Broome, Chenango and Tioga Counties also means that all women screened through the program are eligible for complete coverage of all related diagnostic testing.
