Treatments & Services

Mammography

Mammography screening services are now available at Breast Care of WNY. This allows us to conveniently serve those who live in the Northtowns and need annual mammograms. If you’re over 40, or at high risk for breast cancer, you should not put off your annual mammogram. Our breast imaging team will be conducting screening mammograms with many new safety protocols in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The mammography program at Breast Care of WNY marks Roswell Park’s first imaging service provided outside of its downtown campus. Patients wishing to make an appointment should call 716-332-6834.

Support & Follow-Up Care

As a member of the Roswell Park Care Network, our patients have access to a comprehensive range of support services to help you cope with the day-to-day concerns related to your illness, before, during and after breast cancer treatment. We also work in close collaboration with other health professionals to provide: genetic counseling and testing, physical therapy for lymphedema, psychological counseling services and mastectomy prostheses and bras.

Genetic Counseling and Testing

As a patient of Breast Care of WNY, you have access to the services of certified genetic counselors. A genetic consultation is recommended for persons concerned about their risk for cancer due to a personal or family history of cancer. However, some individuals who do not have an extensive family or personal history may still benefit from a genetic consultation. Following a consultation, genetic testing may be done to confirm a specific gene change (mutation) as the likely cause of a diagnosed cancer, identify potential risks for other cancers or conditions, be used to check if family members are at an increased susceptibility to cancer, and possibly modify medical management.
