St. Luke’s Breast Cancer Detection Center: Jerome  

Today’s women lead increasingly busy lives. Even so, it’s important to take time out for routine breast cancer screening, because all women are at risk. At this facility, St. Luke’s provides screening mammography, clinical breast examination, and education in order to identify cancer at its earliest, most treatable stage.

The American Cancer Society recommendations are:

  • Women with an average risk of breast cancer – most women – should begin yearly mammograms at age 45.
  • Women should be able to start the screening as early as age 40, if they want to. It’s a good idea to start talking to your health care provider at age 40 about when you should begin screening.
  • At age 55, women should have mammograms every other year — though women who want to keep having yearly mammograms should be able to do so.
  • Regular mammograms should continue for as long as a woman is in good health.

Procedures & Treatments

  • An X-ray of the breast used to screen for breast cancer. Mammograms can find tumors that are too small to feel.
