We’re committed to providing comprehensive care for our community. For women, breast health is an important part of overall health. Regular screening exams such as mammograms can detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable. The possibility or diagnosis of breast cancer can be frightening, but our compassionate staff is dedicated to caring for and supporting our patients at every stage of their journey.

Our Breast Health Services

Our comprehensive care begins with our expert resources and advanced technology, including digital mammograms and a computer-assisted detection (CAD) system that aids our radiologists in the early detection of breast cancer.

If breast cancer is confirmed, your cancer care team will work with you to determine the right treatment based on the cancer type, stage and size, as well as your overall health. Our cancer experts treat more 500 patients each year with both breast cancer and benign conditions.
Treatment options include one or more of the following:

  • Surgery to remove the cancer (lumpectomy) or, if needed, the entire breast (mastectomy)
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone therapy

Naturopathic treatment such as herbs and special diets may be an option to alleviate side effects or prevent cancer recurrence. Logan Health’s Dr. Lynn Troy is Montana’s only board certified naturopathic oncologist and her consultation is complimentary to all cancer patients.
Clinical trials also may be available for new and experimental breast cancer treatment. Talk with your cancer care team about your options.

Know Your Risk

About 5 to 10 percent of cancers are considered to be hereditary and can be passed from parent to child, whether they are male or female. Hereditary breast cancer is most commonly associated with mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2, which not only causes an increased risk for breast cancer but other cancers as well, such as ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal, and smaller risks of prostate and pancreatic cancer.

There are many factors that can affect a woman’s risk of breast cancer and/or other cancers. Understanding which factors affect your risk can help you develop a breast cancer screening plan. Here are some hereditary and environmental risk factors:

  • Blood relatives (maternal and/or paternal) with a breast cancer diagnosis before age 50
  • A blood relative with ovarian or pancreatic cancer
  • Blood relative(s) with triple-negative breast cancer
  • Multiple relatives with other various forms of cancer, especially occurring at younger ages (<50 years old) such as  prostate, breast, stomach, uterine, and colon cancers
  • Female relatives with cancer in both breasts
  • Being of Ashkenazi Jewish (Eastern European) heritage
  • Extensive history of benign breast conditions
  • Breast cancer diagnosis at age 45 or younger
  • Male blood relative with breast cancer
  • A known breast cancer gene mutation (such as BRCA1/BRCA2) in your family
  • Age at first period: women who began their periods before age 12 can have up to a 20-percent higher breast cancer risk
  • Age of menopause: women who go through menopause after age 55 have about a 30 percent higher risk of breast cancer than women who do so before age 45
  • Radiation exposure in youth

According to the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), individuals at average risk of breast cancer are recommended to have annual screening mammograms starting at age 40, and those with dense breasts should consider supplemental screening measures. Individuals between 25 to 39 years of age should see their health care provider for a checkup every one to three years, which should include a breast cancer risk assessment and, if not recently done, a breast exam. Anyone with an increased risk for developing breast cancer should see their provider once a year. Talk to your provider to determine your risk level and build a screening schedule.

To schedule your mammogram, sign up here or visit the Logan Health Medical Center for our Walk-In mammography service Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more information about screening guidelines and risk factors, see the NCCN Guidelines for Patients.
