BayCare offers comprehensive breast health services for women of all ages. Our breast centers combine the latest technology with compassionate care, and with numerous locations around Tampa Bay, you’re never far from a highly trained clinical team that has your best imaging needs in mind.
Our breast centers provide a full range of services, including state-of-the-art detection and diagnosis, minimally invasive treatment options and education. We also offer 3-D mammograms, which take images from multiple angles to create a three-dimensional view of your entire breast. This new tool in the fight against breast cancer has many benefits including earlier detection of small cancers. The precision of 3-D reduces the need for repeat scans and makes dense breast tissue easier to view, meaning fewer unnecessary biopsies or tests.

Early Detection Saves Lives
Even though mammograms aren’t recommended until later in life, it’s a good idea to start talking to your doctor about your potential risks around age 30. Your potential risk may determine when you should have your first mammogram and how often you need to have them. You should see your doctor immediately if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Lumps in or on the breast
- Change in nipple appearance
- Pain in or on the breast
- If the breast suddenly feels hard, warm or tender
- Breast size, shape or color change
- Itching or irritation in or on the breast
- Unusual discharge from the nipple
The 15 BayCare Outpatient Imaging Centers are gateways to our seven comprehensive Breast Centers, which provides screening mammograms, diagnostic testing, biopsies and surgery. Choose the most convenient location for your next mammogram.
