Why Choose Avera Breast Center

Comprehensive breast care – it’s happening now at Avera Breast Center locations across the Upper Midwest.

One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. This makes screening and early detection important to all women. Choose Avera Breast Center for the latest and most comprehensive screening and treatment technology.

Advanced Screening Technology

Take advantage Avera’s screening services:

  • Avera High-Risk Breast Cancer Prevention Clinic creates prevention and screening plans based on your personal risk factors in order to catch cancer earlier.
  • 3-D mammography provides hundreds of views of your breast for earlier diagnosis.
  • Digital mammography detects changes in the breast that may indicate early signs of cancer too small or subtle to be felt by self-exams.

If your mammography results are inconclusive, rely on our effective diagnostic testing options to provide the additional insight you need.

Comprehensive Breast Cancer Treatment

Most often, an abnormal mammogram turns out to be noncancerous. If you do receive a breast cancer diagnosis, you can count on the remarkable, innovative and complete treatment options at Avera Cancer Institute locations.
