TMC Breast Care Center

Breast care centerThe TMC Breast Care Center provides women with an environment where they can receive personalized service and diagnostic studies that can help detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, when treament is usually most effective and outcomes more positive. 

A Nurse navigator to guide you

A dedicated nurse navigator at the TMC Breast Care Center is there to help women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer learn as much as they would like breast cancer and its treatment, to help guide women through each stage of their care, answer questions and provide support to every patient and her family. Our nurse navigator is a specially-trained oncology nurse who understands that patients should have all the information they need so that they are empowered to make important decisions about their healthcare.

Specialty Services in a Comfortable Setting

The TMC Breast Care Center provides a warm, comfortable and relaxed outpatient setting that offers the following:

  • A highly-skilled staff.
  • Advanced care and diagnostics that include two digital mammography units, stereotactic breast biopsy, ultrasound services and bone density screening.
  • A multidisciplinary team of clinicians, including a dedicated female radiologist and breast surgeons who focus on the unique needs of women.
  • Spa-like setting designed for comfort and advanced care, featuring special amenities and services that help patients feel at ease.

Early Detection

The best defense against breast cancer is early detection. Remember to get regular mammograms, according to the schedule your doctor recommends for you.

Now Offering Bone Density Screenings!

In addition to advanced digital mammography, Texoma Medical Center offers women bone density testing with the Discovery DXA bone densitometer from HOLOGIC®.

Physicians use bone density tests to:

  • Diagnose bone loss and osteoporosis
  • See how well osteoporosis medicine is working
  • Help predict your risk of future bone fractures

Women over 65 are more likely to get osteoporosis and should have bone screening performed. Women under 65 are at an increased risk of osteoporosis if they have:

  • A broken bone caused by normal activities, such as a fall from standing height or lower (fragility fracture)
  • Chronic rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, eating disorders
  • Early menopause (either from natural causes or surgery)
  • History of hormone treatment for breast cancer
  • Significant loss of height due to compression fractures of the back
  • Strong family history of osteoporosis

Appointments for bone density screening (with a physician's referral) and a mammogram may be scheduled for the same visit.
