Make An Appointment Today To Safely Get Screened For Breast Cancer

Make an appointment today to safely get screened for breast cancer

When you see pink ribbons everywhere, it means two things—it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it’s time for you to get screened. If you’re due for a mammogram, schedule one on today, because timely screenings—and a healthy lifestyle—are your best defenses against breast cancer.

If you receive a cancer diagnosis, our doctors and care teams offer a comprehensive range of treatments and will personalize a plan for you based on your health history and specific needs. We’re committed to caring for the whole you— mind, body, and spirit—at every point in your treatment.

According to the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Quality Compass® 2019, Kaiser Permanente leads Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia in the number of breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings performed for patients.

Because 1 in 8 American women will develop breast cancer, we encourage you to stay up to date on your screenings. If there’s an abnormality, Kaiser Permanente will quickly schedule you for a diagnostic mammogram, ultrasound, or biopsy, with rapid 24- to 48-hour breast pathology results.

By using the latest technology to screen and treat breast cancer, we can provide rapid results. Innovation is integral to our cancer care system, including fully digital 2D and 3D mammograms. Our radiologists provide results via within one hour if tested Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the next business day if tested on evenings and weekends.
