We find solutions, even for stubborn lumps

Breast Care Center

Every tenth woman develops breast cancer once in her lifetime. In the course of early breast cancer detection, breast cancer is suspected even more frequently (BIRADS 4, BIRADS 5).

Our service in the field of breast health is holistic: we offer state-of-the-art technology with innovative imaging methods at the cutting edge of medicine as well as individual and seamless care from the first step to the definitive diagnosis.

In hospital outpatient departments – with further necessary examinations with multiple waiting times – weeks or even months of anxiety are not uncommon. In this case we are happy to support you. Contact us! Within a few days we will give you and your (specialist) doctor clarity about your state of health.

Mammography is an early detection program for breast cancer. It is a modern imaging method for the gentle examination of the breast.

Mammography is currently the most widely used and established – although not infallible – method for the early detection of breast cancer. It allows the detection of malignant changes in the breast with a high degree of accuracy, before they are palpable as lumps or hardening. Mammography cannot prevent the occurrence of breast cancer; it is used to detect breast cancer as early as possible, as this disease can be treated much better in the early stages of the disease. In order to increase the quality and thus the detection rate of breast cancer, an independent second diagnosis by a second radiologist (= double diagnosis) is performed for all mammograms.

No. In Austria, only X-ray machines are used that have a very low radiation dose (about as much as a transatlantic flight) and therefore have a low radiation exposure.

Because the breasts are compressed by the X-ray plates, it can be considered uncomfortable and painful.
It is best to have the mammogram between the sixth and twelfth day of the cycle, as the sensitivity to pain and the density of the breast change during the cycle and can be assessed particularly well during this phase.
