Our Austin ObGyns and staff support these community efforts to find a cure for breast cancer.

Education is key for early detection of breast cancer

Our Austin ObGyns take every opportunity to educate women about early detection of breast cancer. Susan G. Komen Austin also provides many resources, outreach programs and educational materials to women throughout the Austin area.

The more women know about breast cancer, the more likely they are to schedule annual visits and screenings with a physician, an important step in the fight against breast cancer. Women can contact our Austin ObGyns to learn more about how they can take proactive steps for early detection of breast cancer.

Schedule an annual wellness visit and mammogram with our Austin ObGyns

Our Austin ObGyns and Susan G. Komen Austin urge women to take three important steps to ensure that breast cancer is found in its earliest, most treatable stages.

  1. Women should receive a clinical breast exam each year at their annual wellness visit.
  2. Women age 40 or older, or women of any age who have risk factors for developing breast cancer, should schedule an annual mammogram.
  3. Women should practice breast self-awareness. This means getting to know what their breasts normally look and feel like so any changes can be reported to our Austin ObGyns.

Like Susan G. Komen Austin, our Austin ObGyns are advocates for women in the fight against breast cancer. Contact us for an appointment or more information about breast cancer screening.
