earlydetectionsavesThe Women's Center believes that early detection is the way to save lives, and through accessible mammography screenings it can be done in every community. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-most common cancer overall. In 2014, an estimated 232,030 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. alone. 


So no matter who you are or where you live, understanding breast cancer is important. But the most important thing to know is this: a diagnosis is not a death sentence. Breast cancer can be treated, but early detection is so very important! 

The Women's Center provides 2D and 3D mammography and does so with NO long appointment delays. We have designed our mammography screening to make the most technicologically advanced equipment available today extraordinarliy accessible to women all over Central Florida!
