For the majority of women, a screening mammogram provides peace of mind that they do not have breast cancer. Occasionally, a screening mammogram requires further diagnostic study. The efficiency of the process from screening to diagnosis to treatment can be a key factor in the patient’s outcome.
The Outer Banks Hospital offers a Coordinated Breast Health Program that ensures timely diagnosis and care. The Program is coordinated by our Breast Health Nurse Coordinator who follows each patient from screening, to diagnosis, to care. She can be reached by calling (252) 449-9101.
