When it comes to caring for your breast health, Central Maine Healthcare offers a spectrum of services to help screen, diagnose, and treat. From the moment you walk in the door, we’ll be there with you the whole way. Compassionate care is our priority, paired with the newest advances in breast health. You’ll know you’re in great hands with our team.
It’s always a good idea to come in for regular screenings, whether your family has a history of breast cancer or you are simply interested in prevention. We offer full breast health analysis, from tissue screening to genetic testing. We’ll uncover your level of risk and talk about ways to manage your prevention protocol.
All three of our hospitals offer mammography and breast ultrasound services. Mammography and ultrasound can detect or confirm the presence of cancerous cells or tumors. For more advanced diagnostic needs, patients can visit our specialist care team at the Sam and Jennie Bennett Breast Care Center in Lewiston. There, we offer ultra sound-guided and stereotactic core breast biopsies. Surgical biopsies are performed in a surgical suite at the hospital in Lewiston (Central Maine Medical Center).
Central Maine Healthcare offers a full range of surgical options, including breast reconstruction. Our treatment services also include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy. We also help patients coordinate other treatment modalities, as needed.
We offer support services including massage therapy, support groups and assistance with transportation for treatments and follow-up meetings. We can link you to The Dempsey Center, a cancer support center. The Dempsey Center offers a variety of educational and wellness resources for patients, their families and caregivers.
