Mammography is the single most effective thing you can do to make sure that if you should have breast cancer, it's detected at its earliest and most treatable stages.
That's why the EvergreenHealth Breast Health Center was the first in King County to offer the breakthrough 3-D digital mammography imaging technology. The 3-D images can spot cancers not seen by regular 2-D mammography.
That means catching cancer when it's most treatable. It's one of the reasons why our breast cancer treatment outcomes and long-term survival rates exceed the national averages:
Patients diagnosed in early stages,
Five-year survival rate *
|No recurrence of disease after 12 years||98%||85%|
* Cases diagnosed in 2003-2006 data from 1489 programs. Source: 2014 National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) Commission on Cancer (CoC), August 18, 2014
You're in good hands at the EvergreenHealth Breast Health Center, where we can meet all of your breast care needs in one convenient setting, including:
Should treatment be needed, you'll have immediate access to the Halvorson Cancer Center for surgical, radiation and medical oncology treatment options, including clinical and research studies.
