Breast health services
UCHealth is dedicated to helping women of all ages take charge of their breast health through prevention and early detection of breast cancer and other conditions.
The importance of regular breast exams
Routine breast cancer screenings are important for early detection.
These screenings include:
- Monthly self-breast exams.
- Yearly breast exam, usually conducted at an annual gynecologic exam.
- Yearly mammogram for women age 40 and older, or younger women who are at high risk for developing breast cancer.
- Other screenings that may be recommended for women who are at high risk for developing breast cancer.
At UCHealth, you can schedule your breast examination with whomever makes you feel most comfortable – a doctor, nurse practitioner, or certified nurse midwife.
All of our breast health specialists provide the sensitive, confidential and high-quality care you expect and deserve.
