During this time of major physical and emotional changes in her life, young women need support and guidance, as well as excellent medical care. We are happy to help transition from pediatric to adult care, which usually takes place between ages 18 and 21, depending on a young woman’s needs. We’re here to help you. We can also provide information about menstruation and sexuality, protection against human papillomavirus (HPV), the first gynecological visit and maintaining strong bones.
Several studies have found 3D mammography to be more effective than conventional mammography in identifying cancers earlier, which can lead to more effective and less aggressive treatments that yield better outcomes for patients. It is particularly more effective with denser tissues and has been found to reduce the number of false positives. Click here to learn more.
