Women's Wellness Center

At Karmanos we stand alongside our patients who are concerned about or diagnosed with breast cancer. From preventative care to diagnosis through treatment and recovery, we understand the importance of ongoing care and careful monitoring for breast cancer.

Preventative Care

If you are a woman who has a history of cancer, has a genetic predisposition for breast cancer or just has general concerns or questions regarding their breast health, Karmanos offers guidance, support and screenings. Our highly-trained nurse practitioners, who are focused on overall breast health and wellness, are here to help.

  • Assess new patients with new breast problems including pain, lump(s), asymmetry, nipple discharge, swelling, skin color changes, infections, abnormal imaging and offer second opinions
  • Provide well breast care including clinical breast exams on the same day as mammogram, as well as discussion of preliminary results
  • Assess, monitor and counsel women regarding elevated risk for breast cancer

At Karmanos Cancer Center we know cancer is most curable in its early stages and routine screenings save lives every day.  Be proactive. Advocate for your health and visit our Women’s Wellness Clinic today.
