Breast Health

Your Journey, Our PromiseGroup of pink butterflies

Our goal is to provide lifelong care for our patients, whether that means normal, yearly mammograms or long-term cancer treatment. From certified mammography technologists to board-certified breast surgeons, a fellowship-trained breast imaging radiologist and nurse navigators specializing in radiology and breast cancer patient care, our staff provides individualized, exceptional support for patients.

Mammograms Save Lives

Each year thousands of lives are saved by one diagnostic test— the mammogram. It’s the only medical diagnostic technology proven to decrease mortality. The five-year survival rate for early-stage breast cancer, which is normally detected through screening, is close to 100 percent. Chesapeake Regional offers mammograms at the Breast Center and on our Mobile Mammography Unit.

Patient Care Team

Along with technologically advanced equipment, on-site board-certified physicians, surgeons, and oncology-certified nurses, The Breast Center Staff are invaluable resources. They help patients fight their cancer by working with a team of experts to help patients focus on the emotional, financial and physical toll cancer can take, enabling patients and their caregivers to focus on what matters most: getting better. 

All-inclusive Care

Comprehensive

Breast centers like ours offer comprehensive, all-inclusive care and are able to deliver quicker on-site care for those with abnormal mammogram findings. We can also provide patients with the resources and guidance of several specialists, including radiologists, oncologists and surgeons, all focused on providing patients with personalized care. If treatment is needed for cancer care, patients remain with the same providers throughout the process.

Advanced Technology

Having all of the latest technology, such as all-digital and 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, 3D breast biopsy, breast MRI and MRI-guided and ultrasound-guided biopsies on site, allows our patients to have more options for their diagnosis and treatment.

Genetic Testing & High-Risk Clinic

We offer genetic counseling and a high-risk clinic for those at increased risk of breast cancer due to family history or the identification of a genetic mutation.

Education & Events

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare sponsors a breast cancer support group open to newly diagnosed women as well as survivors. At the Breast Friends meetings, women comfort, encourage and honor their courageous journey to fight cancer. They share concerns and exchange information while health care professionals speak on topics of interest. The group is facilitated by a breast cancer survivor and an oncology nurse. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Lifestyle Health & Fitness Center. Call 757-312-2232 to learn more.

We also offer quarterly Totally Pink for Life exercise classes:

Totally Pink for Life - An exercise program especially for women surviving breast cancer, whether they are going through treatment or are post-treatment. The purpose of the class is to improve range of motion, weight management, self-esteem and quality of life.

Committed to the Community

Our Breast Center is proud to be affiliated with Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation’s annual Bra-ha-ha® bra decorating contest, Award Show & Auction and 5K Fun Run. All associated Bra-ha-ha events raise funds to provide uninsured and underinsured members of the community with free breast health services including screenings and mammograms.
