Breast Health


Lake Charles Memorial Hospital's Breast Health Program is dedicated to the prevention, education, early detection and treatment of breast cancer in women throughout Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana.  The Breast Health Program offers breast diagnostics and mammogram services in a supportive, comfortable, and private environment.  The Breast Health Program uses digital mammography, breast sonography, and breast MRI’s to define the location of a breast lump or abnormal breast mass. With minimally invasive techniques such as stereotactic breast biopsy to assess a breast abnormality, as well as sentinel node biopsy which uses cutting-edge, pinpoint accuracy to remove the first few lymph nodes into which a tumor drains, our specialized breast health team comprised of surgeons, oncologists, diagnostic imaging technologists, gynecologists, radiologists, and radiation oncologists, provides proactive treatment options based on your particular diagnosis. Our comprehensive diagnostic services include:

  • Diagnostic Mammography
  • Digital Mammography (Memorial for Women campus)
  • Breast Ultrasound 
  • Computer-Aided Imaging & Detection
  • Fine Needle Aspiration
  • Imaged Guided Breast Biopsy
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy 
  • Sentinel Node Biopsy
  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy

Although breast abnormalities aren’t always cancer-related, should more advanced treatment be necessary, our Cancer Center offers the latest breast cancer therapies in Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana comparable to more well-known cancer treatment institutions, including intensity modulated radiation therapy and the newest chemotherapy drugs.
