Breast Care

We are here to help you find what you need.
Morton Hospital’s Breast Care Program includes a talented team of physicians, surgeons, nurses and imaging technologists whose shared goal is to provide comprehensive, personalized care from diagnosis through recovery.

Our specialists take a team approach to implementing each patient’s plan of care, working closely with the patient and their family, their primary care provider, and one another. When treatment involves surgery, our medical oncologist, breast surgeon and reconstructive surgeon collaborate to ensure coordinated care that is customized for each individual patient based on their needs.

Mammography
Morton Hospital's Women's Imaging Center uses state-of-the-art digital mammography for early detection of breast cancer. Morton Hospital’s mammography units are fully accredited by the American College of Radiology, certified by the US Department of Health and Human Services, and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The Women's Imaging Center is open six days a week. If you have discovered a lump in your breast, you will be seen as quickly as possible. Digital mammography is offered at two convenient locations: in Taunton and in Middleboro (where walk-ins are welcomed).

Morton Hospital:

  • Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday: 7:15 a.m. - 7:45 p.m.
  • Thursday and Friday: 7:15 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7:15-11:45a.m.

Middleboro:

  • Monday: 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday through Friday: 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
     

Ultrasound
Breast ultrasound is another technique used to evaluate breast health. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create a visual image of the breast, thereby allowing the radiologist to determine whether a lump is solid or a fluid-filled cyst.

Biopsy
Morton Hospital also has a stereotactic biopsy system. This minimally invasive equipment is used to perform core biopsies, a technique that may eliminate the need for more invasive surgery for benign lesions and better surgical planning for malignancies.

    Getting Ready for your Breast Biopsy Your doctor has referred you to the Morton Hospital Breast Care center for a breast biopsy or cyst aspiration (removal of a small amount of fluid). Having a breast biopsy or cyst aspiration does not mean you have cancer. In fact, more than 80 percent of patients who have these procedures do not have cancer.
