Emanuel Cancer Center Shines Pink in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Oct 1, 2022

October Puts Spotlight on Breast Health

The Emanuel Cancer Center is committed to the fight against breast cancer. Statistics indicate that one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. Mammograms are the most effective form of early detection. Emanuel makes it easy for women to get their routine screenings, including offering next day appointments and extended hours in October.

Emanuel is putting its breast health services in the spotlight in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Although, it’s important to keep breast health top of mind year round.

Shining Pink for October:

Patients and residents visiting the Emanuel Cancer Center or driving by during the evening hours will notice something special. The entire building is shining pink for the month of October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The hope is that this will serve as a reminder for women to schedule their routine mammogram and put their health first.

Monday Mammos:

Annual mammograms are an important part of a woman’s wellness routine, generally beginning at age 40. The Ruby E. Bergman Women’s Diagnostic Center at the Emanuel Cancer Center is staying open late every Monday in October until 7 p.m. to accommodate busy women. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day for those with busy schedules. We understand it may be difficult for working moms and busy women to get in for their screenings during normal business hours. But the last thing that should be neglected is their health. These extended hours allow women to come in after hours, when it may be more convenient. In addition to Monday Mammos, the Ruby E. Bergman Women’s Diagnostic Center will also be open every Saturday in October from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call (833) 237-2968 to schedule a mammogram appointment.

3D Mammography:

The Emanuel Cancer Center offers 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) for breast cancer screening. Breast cancer screening with tomosynthesis when combined with a conventional 2D mammography has a 40 percent higher invasive cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone.

The 3D mammography system is conveniently located at the Ruby E. Bergman Women’s Diagnostic Center inside the Emanuel Cancer Center’s beautiful, spa-like facility. Patients receive their mammogram at the diagnostic center, instead of the main hospital facility.

The 3D mammography system offers exceptionally sharp breast images, and an advanced design providing more patient comfort. The ground-breaking tomosynthesis platform is designed to deliver superior screening and diagnostic performance for all breast types. It produces a three-dimensional view of the breast tissue that helps radiologists identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue.

If your mammogram results indicate you need a breast biopsy, we offer core needle biopsy, fine needle aspiration biopsy, stereotactic biopsy, ultrasound-guided biopsy or vacuum-assisted core biopsy. Patients are cared for by nurturing staff and radiologists who treat each person with the care and compassion they deserve.

New Scalp Cooling System:

Emanuel Cancer Center is proud to now offer a new scalp cooling system called DigniCap for those impacted by cancer. Hair loss is a common side effect of cancer treatment that can make some patients feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. DigniCap offers patients the ability to reduce hair loss from certain chemotherapy treatments.

The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System consists of a computerized cooling unit that is managed through a touch screen display and an attached cooling cap. Temperature regulated coolant continuously circulates through specially designed channels in the cooling cap. Reduced temperature results in a decreased blood flow to the scalp area so that less chemotherapy reaches the hair cells. Therefore, hair cells are not exposed to the full dose of chemotherapy and may be able to survive the chemotherapy treatment. As a result, hair is less likely to fall out.

To learn if this system is right for you, be sure to talk with your physician.

Free Wig Bank and Resource Room:

The American Cancer Society provides a complimentary wig to any woman experiencing cancer and hair loss. The Emanuel Cancer Center has a wig bank on-site, which also provides complimentary hats, scarves and lap blankets. The resource library has materials available on nearly every kind of cancer as well as materials relating to nutrition, coping with cancer, caregiver support, family concerns, inspiration and more. To book an appointment for either service, please call (209) 664-2427.
