Our Comprehensive Breast Cancer Treatment Services
Every breast cancer diagnosis is unique. Therefore, every treatment plan must also be specific to an individual. The KCBC staff is adept at identifying and customizing a path to recovery based on diagnoses and previous success markers. Your comprehensive breast treatment plan may include one or more of the following services:
- Screening Mammograms – A screening mammogram uses special x-ray technology to detect abnormal growths or changes in breast tissue. We recommend scheduling a screening appointment with our radiologists at least once every year.
- Screening Breast Ultrasound – We recommend screening breast ultrasounds for women with dense mammographic patterns. This advanced imaging technique can often detect breast cancers that an x-ray may miss.
- Mobile Mammography – We are proud to offer a mobile mammography program to make screening easy for women across East Tennessee. Check our schedule for dates and locations that are convenient for you.
- Diagnostic Breast Ultrasounds – A diagnostic breast ultrasound – or sonography – uses sound waves that bounce off of your breast tissue to create images. We use these to detect suspicious lumps and masses or clarify questionable physical findings.
- Digital Diagnostic Mammography – Our team uses digital diagnostic mammography to examine unusual breast changes or abnormal findings found during a screening mammogram.
- Second Opinion Evaluation – We provide second opinions for women who have questioned an abnormal mammogram or received an abnormal screening from an outside facility.
- Breast MRI – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) involves a specially-designed machine that takes high-resolution photos while maintaining breast comfort. Ask our specialists if you are a good candidate for this type of screening.
- Image-Guided Biopsies – KCBC uses image-guided biopsies to diagnose small masses or calcifications seen on mammogram screenings. Results are typically available within one to two days.
- Multispecialty Cancer Team – Our team of breast surgeons, clinical breast radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, and plastic and reconstructive surgeons will collaboratively develop a treatment plan to meet your needs.
- Bone Densitometry – We also offer bone density tests to diagnose osteoporosis and make recommendations to help protect your bones.
