Breast Care Q&A

Why is breast care important?

Breast care is crucial for maintaining overall health and well-being. Regular breast care allows for the early detection of potential issues, contributing to more effective and less invasive treatments. By prioritizing breast health, you can empower yourself with the knowledge and tools needed for proactive and preventative measures.

What does a breast care exam consist of?

A breast care exam is a thorough evaluation performed by experienced women's health providers at Capital Women's Care. During the exam, your provider will conduct a visual and manual examination of the breasts, checking for any lumps, abnormalities, or changes in size or shape. Additionally, your provider may discuss your medical history and address any concerns you may have regarding breast health.

How often should I get a breast exam?

The frequency of breast exams may vary based on individual health factors. However, a general guideline is to undergo a clinical breast exam at least once a year. Regular self-exams at home are also encouraged as they allow you to become familiar with your own body and detect any changes promptly.


Capital Women's Care also offers in-office mammography services at their state-of-the-art facility to help women stay on top of their health. 

How does mammography help with early detection of breast cancer? 

Mammography is a specialized X-ray imaging technique designed for breast examination. It plays a crucial role in early breast cancer detection, offering a detailed look at the breast tissue. Mammograms are effective in identifying abnormalities, even before they are noticeable through physical examination.


For most women, starting annual mammograms at age 40 is recommended. However, individual risk factors and health history may influence the timing. Your provider at Capital Women's Care will work with you to determine the most appropriate schedule for your mammograms.


Capital Women's Care emphasizes the importance of comprehensive breast health. Beyond mammography, the team provides education on breast care and offers a supportive environment for discussing any concerns or questions you may have regarding your breast health.
