Breast Cancer Detection and Diagnosis: Getting Answers Fast
When it comes to breast cancer detection, speed is crucial. If your mammogram shows something abnormal, your dedicated Breast Health Nurse will call and make an appointment for you to have a diagnostic mammogram or breast ultrasound - which the radiologist will read while you're there.
If further testing is recommended, your Breast Health Nurse will work with you to arrange all needed appointments in a timely manner so you can have your answers quickly.
At OhioHealth, we know you don't want to wait and worry, that's why our average number of days from detection of a breast problem to a confirmed diagnosis is less than nine days. You can also rely on OhioHealth to provide advanced technology and state of the art diagnostic tools. Because accuracy is just as important as speed when confirming a breast cancer diagnosis.
