Breast Care Center

Why St. Joseph Hospital

At St. Joseph Hospital, we know the potential risk of breast cancer can lead to long, difficult periods of worrying, waiting and uncertainty. As the first comprehensive breast care center in the region, we simplify the process by brining all areas of breast health under one roof. Our Breast Care Center is even recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

Using the latest state-of-the-art technology, our expert staff offers compassionate care for all women. To prevent, diagnose and treat breast cancer, we provide 3D mammography, screening, diagnostic breast ultrasound, breast MRI, breast biopsy, cancer risk assessment and genetic counseling at three convenient locations. We’re proud to be a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

Our specially trained breast health nurse practitioners provide breast health education, case management, advocacy and support — all available on-site by appointment. We also offer nutrition, psychosocial support and counseling by referral. Our board-certified breast radiologists are also on-site Tuesday through Friday.

Early detection serves as one of the most important tools in the fight against breast cancer. That’s why we offer an extensive list of screenings and services. Utilizing the latest technology, our goal is to detect any signs of concern as early as possible. We know waiting for important results can be stressful, which is why in most instances patients receive their results on the day of their visit.

Breast Cancer Support Group

We created a Breast Cancer Support Group that welcomes survivors, newly diagnosed, family members, and friends. This group is a safe place in which you can talk about and work through the feelings and challenges you may experience with other people who have gone through similar experiences. Being a part of a support group often creates a sense of belonging that helps each person feel more understood, and less alone.

This group meets on the third Wednesday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm within the Breast Care Center. It is facilitated by Sabine Manoli, MD, FACS, and the Breast Care Center staff. This is a free group and no pre-registration is required. If you have any additional questions, contact us at (603) 595-5700, option #2.

Within the United States, a reported one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and 1% of all breast cancer cases develop in men. Breast self-exams (and clinical breast exams) are recommended to start at age 21-25 in women, though many will not have their first mammogram until age 40.

Most women should schedule an annual mammogram starting at age 40

Early detection is important for diagnosing and treating breast cancer.

In the 1980s, doctors began recommending that women over 40 have a mammogram once a year. The outcome was significant: Breast cancer deaths fell by 35% due to annual mammography.
