As women age, changes in breast tissue can occur. Many of these changes are normal. Yet one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The Breast Center at Fairview Ridges Hospital offers complete care for breast health – from advanced technology to detect cancer early to treatment – in an environment designed especially for women. If the diagnosis is cancer, we offer one of the region’s leading cancer programs and will be with you every step of the way.

If you are identified as high-risk, we work closely with you to develop the best possible plan. Its goals will be to reduce your risk of developing cancer and to increase the likelihood of discovering a cancer at a stage when it is most curable.
Same-day screening appointments available
At the Fairview Ridges Breast Center, same-day screening appointments are available for mammograms. Screening mammograms do not require a referral from your doctor; however, we will inform your primary care physician of your results. To schedule an appointment, call 952-892-2273.
Diagnostic mammograms are for men and women who have breast lumps, pain or discharge. A referral from your doctor is required to schedule a diagnostic mammogram, so talk to your doctor right away if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
