Promoting Wellness and Breast Health

Are you at risk?

Our Mission

Comprehensive Breast Care is a surgical practice with 100% dedication to the care of the patient with breast disease. Whether benign or malignant, coordinated and efficient care plans are critical. Our mission is to navigate patients via evidence based 'care plans' to achieve a diagnosis and treatment plan.

What is BI-RADS?

The American College of Radiology's standard system, the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS), categorizes mammogram results with a number (0-6). A standard way of reporting mammogram results allows physicians to 'relate' the level of concern using the same terms, which can help ensure better follow up of suspicious findings.

Choose Your BI-RADS Number


Need more imaging/work-up

More imaging required; does NOT necessarily mean there is something 'bad', just a finding that needs more images to better define.

Learn More


Normal, no findings at all

No findings of concern.

Learn More


Normal, but with a finding

A finding that is known to be normal/benign, such as a cyst, or a finding that has been previously evaluated and remains stable over time.

Learn More


"Likely" benign

A 'likely' benign finding. These findings usually have had additional imaging at the time of their presentation, but may need a follow up typically in 6 months to confirm stability. Likelihood of cancer 3%.

Learn More


Abnormal finding

An abnormal/inderminate finding, requiring biopsy. In some institutions, these are divided into subclasses: 4a, 4b, 4c, depending on the degree of suspicion. These findings are best biopsied, rather than followed. Likelihood of cancer about 20-25%.

Very suspicious finding

Very suspicious finding, requiring biopsy. These are cancer > 90% of the time (but not always).

Learn More


Already Proven Cancer

These are findings that have already been proven cancerous by a biopsy. Typically, BIRADS 6 studies are found during the evaluation of patients diagnosed with breast cancer.

Why is a mammogram important?

Mammography is the most successful screening imaging modality in breast health. Since the inception of routine, screening mammography, breast cancer mortality has significantly decreased.

Multidisciplinary Care

Multidisciplinary care is a collaborative approach to treatment planning and coordination of patient care. It is well documented and accepted that multidisciplinary care represents ‘best practice’ in terms of treatment planning and care for cancer patients and has been shown to improve outcomes.
