Breast Health

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer deaths among Georgia women. About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer during their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (888) 843-8133

Risk factors for breast cancer include gender, age, family history and lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and diet. While the cause of breast cancer is still unknown, we do know that it can be easier to treat breast cancer when it is found early. We partner with you to detect and treat breast cancer as quickly as possible.

At Eastside Breast & Diagnostic Center, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive and exceptional care with compassion and integrity. We will do what it takes to ensure that your experience is always positive. We use state-of-the-art equipment and hold nationally recognized certifications to deliver the most comprehensive breast services.

To pursue excellence, Eastside Breast & Diagnostic Center has a variety of services that can be performed for your Complete Peace of Mind. We make every effort to convey screening results as soon as possible for:

  • Digital Diagnostic Mammogram
  • Breast Biopsies
  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Breast MRI
  • 3D Mammography/Tomosynthesis
  • Bone Densitometry

Eastside is committed to providing superior breast care and we take pride in offering a variety of same day services at the Breast Center. We offer appointments 7:30AM-4:30PM Monday-Friday.

Digital Mammogram
As an example of our state-of-the-art approach to mammography, the Breast Center offers digital mammograms. This technology allows the radiologist to review your exam on high definition monitors making it easier to differentiate cancer tissue from normal tissue. This technology is used for both screening and diagnostic exams.

3D Mammography/Tomosynthesis
We now offer a new technology called GENIUS 3D MAMMOGRAPHY. 3D Mammography exams (also called tomosynthesis) are very similar to having a traditional mammogram, but captures multiple images of the breast from several angles. This creates a layered 3D breast image. GENIUS 3D mammography is approved for all women who would be undergoing a standard mammogram regardless of age or breast type.

Breast Ultrasound & Breast MRI
These two diagnostic procedures are used in conjunction with a mammogram and allow radiologists to study a specific area found on a mammogram or a lump discovered by a patient.

Breast Biopsy
This minimally invasive procedure is performed when an area of the breast tissue is suspicious or different from a previous mammogram. In this procedure, a small sampling of the suspicious area is taken and sent to the lab for evaluation.

Genetic Risk Assessment & Testing
We will offer breast cancer genetic risk assessment and genetic testing for patients who qualify. A woman’s risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she inherits a harmful mutation of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene.
