Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Central Minnesota Breast Care

Comprehensive Care & Support from a Compassionate Team

When it comes to breast health, you feel vulnerable. CentraCare breast health services provides the latest technology with a gentle touch. Our team will educate you on the basics of breast health and will be there to support you and your loved ones anytime you have a question or discover something that concerns you.

How to Perform a Self-Breast Exam

To perform a self-breast exam, stand in front of a mirror with your arms at your side. Raise one arm and feel around on your breast with your free hand. Keep an eye out for any discolorations or growths. When you’re done, raise the other arm and repeat with the other breast. Remember that both breasts will not necessarily feel the same, so do not panic — this is normal.

At CentraCare, We Recommend a Three-Part Approach to Breast Health:

  • Regular clinical exams by a health care professional
  • Monthly self-breast exams starting at age 18
  • Regular mammograms starting at age 40

Taking an active role in your breast health could save your life. Most breast cancer diagnosed at an early stage has a five-year survival rate of 97 percent. At CentraCare, our team will answer your questions and help you create a self-care plan built with your risk factors and medical needs in mind. We will be here to assist with all of your breast care needs.
