Breast Cancer Treatment at Penn Highlands

Comprehensive and Compassionate Care For Breast Cancer Patients

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with breast cancer, you may be wondering if you need to travel far from home for the latest in breast cancer care. But there’s no need. That’s because Penn Highlands Healthcare offers exceptional breast cancer care right here in Central Pennsylvania. And it all starts with our advanced mammogram screening technology.

Diagnosing Breast Cancer

At Penn Highlands, we have a dedicated breast radiologist whose sole focus and expertise is mammography. If your mammogram screening is abnormal, we’ll call you back — often the same day — for a breast ultrasound. This test helps our radiologists determine if an abnormality is a concern and also helps them classify breast lesions and abnormal tissue.

If breast cancer is suspected, our breast radiologist will perform a stereotactic breast biopsy to obtain a sample of tissue from your breast that will be tested for cancer in our lab. This minimally invasive procedure is performed under local anesthesia in less than an hour. Stereotactic breast biopsy hurts less, leaves less scarring, and offers quicker results than traditional surgical biopsy.

Breast Cancer Treatment at Penn Highlands

If cancer is detected, you’ll be referred to a medical oncologist right away. This expert cancer doctor will explain your treatment options and create an individualized breast cancer care plan.

Breast cancer care plans often include surgery, whether a lumpectomy to remove only the tumor or mastectomy to remove the entire breast. At Penn Highlands, we have a surgeons on staff who are dedicated to treating breast cancer.

If your physician recommends surgery, you likely will also have radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or some combination.

Breast Cancer Screening

Mammogram screening is the most often used test for detecting breast cancer early in its most treatable stages. At Penn Highlands, we offer Tomosynthesis – more commonly called 3-D mammography – is now available. Using the same X-ray technology as traditional 2-D mammography, the procedure feels essentially the same for the patient. The difference is the image clarity for the radiologist who reads the mammogram. Whereas 2-D mammograms give views only from the front and side of the breast, 3-D mammograms provide images of the breast in “slices” from many different angles.

Two-dimensional mammography is still a gold standard and is indicated for routine screenings. It is an excellent tool for detecting breast abnormalities.
