Breast Health

Changes in breast tissue happen throughout your life, especially during puberty, parts of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, as well as menopause. Knowing what’s normal for your breasts can help you recognize signs of change that need special attention or medical care.

OU Health Breast Health Network

When you choose OU Health Breast Health Network for your breast health care, you’ll work with Oklahoma’s largest and most comprehensive group of board-certified breast radiologists and breast health specialists for annual screenings, complete evaluation, accurate diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan that fits your specific situation.

If you need further care or treatment, you benefit from our partnerships with nationally recognized referral centers at OU Health, including the Stephenson Cancer Center, Oklahoma’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Designated Cancer Center.

Comprehensive Breast Health Care Close to Home

No matter where you live in Oklahoma, you can take advantage of OU Health’s Breast Health Network to receive the highest level of breast health care and access to the latest advanced technology at locations in Oklahoma City and Edmond.

Across the state, Oklahoma’s businesses, towns and local hospitals can arrange for OU Health’s Mobile Mammography Program to bring advanced digital mammography equipment and imaging experts to your area for top-quality care close to home.

Your Best Source for Annual Screening Mammograms

Experts across the nation and at OU Health agree – women should have yearly mammograms starting at age 40.

Your annual screening at OU Health Breast Health Network begins with a noninvasive procedure – advanced 3D mammogram (tomosynthesis) – to give your doctor the most comprehensive and clearest views of your breasts, which aids in early detection of any breast problems. With a family history of breast cancer, your screenings might start earlier. To understand your risk, take the Hereditary Cancer Quiz.

Dense breast tissue also benefits from the high-resolution images provided by 3D or digital mammogram. Explore your options for mammography and breast imaging services at OU Health.
