If you detect a lump, you should act quickly. So should your medical team. Call our Seattle Breast Clinic at (877) 433-9813 or our Federal Way Medical Center at (253) 838-2400 if you detect a lump in your breast, and we'll schedule an appointment. Most patients can be seen for an exam the same day they call.
At the Breast Clinic at Virginia Mason, in Seattle and Federal Way, we provide prompt access for the care and treatment of any breast concern, including:
- Breast lumps or masses
- Breast pain
- Nipple discharge
- Change in appearance of the breast
- Skin changes
- Family history of breast cancer
- Benign breast disease
Most breast problems are not cancerous. A clinical exam by a breast health practitioner — and imaging services, when necessary — can help clarify the nature of your problem and bring you peace of mind. At the Breast Clinic, you are in the care of health professionals with a particular interest and expertise in your breast concerns.
Convenience to Fit Your Lifestyle
Virginia Mason's Breast Clinic schedules the imaging services you need — such as mammogram or ultrasound — immediately after your clinical breast exam. Receive a comprehensive exam with a breast health specialist, and the imaging services you need, in just one visit to the clinic.
Care When You Want It
We make it a priority to schedule you for the most appropriate services at a time that works for you. Most appointments can be scheduled on the same day.
During your visit to the Breast Clinic, we work with you to:
- Review your health history, including the medications you take
- Talk with you about your particular symptoms and worries
- Provide a complete breast exam by nurse practitioner
- Provide a mammogram and/or ultrasound, if you need it
- Develop a plan of care specifically for you to closely track your progress and address your concerns
Depending on the results of your mammogram and/or ultrasound, we may suggest that you have a needle biopsy. In the rare instance that cancer is detected, Virginia Mason's Breast Cancer Care Program will provide the most advanced, highly specialized care available.
