Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

Early Detection

There are more than 6 million breast cancer survivors around the world. Regular mammograms can help find cancer early, increasing the chances of survival.

Broward Health Women's Services provides compassionate care for women in South Florida. With sophisticated capabilities and a coordinated team of healthcare professionals, we are committed to making it easier than ever for women to access advanced breast care and early detection. Although breast cancer cannot be prevented, it can be detected early, when treatment is more likely to be successful.

All women should speak with their healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate time to schedule their screening.

Schedule Your Mammogram

Broward Health has advanced technology in breast cancer screening including digital mammography, sensory suites, contrast-enhanced and 3-D mammography. These modern technologies are designed to enable physicians and clinicians to pinpoint disease and plan a course of treatment.

Visit one of our Broward Health diagnostic imaging centers or one of our four area hospitals for your mammogram.

Click here to schedule your mammogram or call 954-759-7500. Same day appointments are often available.
