After undergoing a routine mammogram in May 2010, Sue Marcoux, 42, found a lump in her breast. Working within the mother of five's busy schedule, the staff at the Breast Center at Littleton Adventist Hospital performed additonal imaging as soon as
possible so Marcoux would not have to wait for results.
Marcoux's first mammogram in 2008 at the Breast Center showed nothing abnormal. Fortunately, an ultrasound revealed that the lump found in the 2010 mammogram was enlarged tissue and not cancerous. Now, Marcoux undergoes mammography screenings every
six months to promote early detection if cancer should develop.
"From a woman's perspective, the possibility of having cancer can cause immediate stress and worry," says Marcoux. "Littleton Hospital's ability to schedule my tests and deliver results in a timely manner allowed me to avoid unnecessary anxiety."
Littleton Hospital was recently awarded NAPBC accreditation. This accreditation is the gold standard for breast care. NAPBC evaluates strengths across a wide spectrum of services, including prevention, early detection, diagnosis, pretreatment, staging,

There are several abnormalities found during breast exams that are non-cancerous or benign. It is important to report any type of change in your breasts to your doctor and have it checked to confirm that it is safe.
