Your partner in the fight against breast cancer
If you haven’t been personally touched by breast cancer, chances are you know someone who has. In fact, breast cancer is second only to lung cancer in the number of cancer deaths in women. But we’re fighting back with a powerful weapon.
Women in west Georgia and east Alabama have their own advanced facilities that are completely dedicated to fighting breast cancer: Tanner Breast Health in Carrollton and Tanner Breast Health in Villa Rica.
A caring staff of female health professionals performs mammography, ultrasound and bone mineral density evaluations. Breast specialists on the nursing staff offer one-on-one breast self-exam education and clinical breast examinations. We also provide a variety of community education programs on women's health issues. Both facilities serve as a special resource for women, offering a speakers' bureau and a variety of literature on women's health.
The combination of our expertise and the remarkable advances in diagnosing and treating breast cancer means that you have a chance of survival greater than 95%.
Breast cancer treatment in a spa-like environment
Tanner’s two women’s centers offer a complete range of services from screenings and mammography to diagnostic procedures and treatment with the most advanced technologies available—all in spa-like environments. At Tanner Breast Health in Carrollton, you’ll also find a boutique offering healthcare items related to breast cancer and treatment, and a support group for women to help them “survive and thrive.”
Regular breast exams and mammography
According to the American Cancer Society, following early detection guidelines is the most important action a woman can take to improve her chances of early survival. Breast Health is the place to begin your regular screenings. If a mammography or clinical exam detects a problem, you’re in close proximity to immediate consultation and treatment choices—in addition to on-site specialists, the Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center , Comprehensive Breast Care Center and Northwest Georgia Oncology Center are also in the same complex.
