Sometimes all you need is a mammogram. Sometimes a closer look is needed. And sometimes breast cancer is discovered.
For this reason, the Kearney Breast Center offers patients in the greater Vancouver-Portland area more than breast imaging services alone. Together with radiologists, breast surgeons, oncologists, plastic surgeons and nurse navigators, we are able to support you whether your visit is for a routine mammogram or a fight with breast cancer.
