THE LIVES WE TOUCH

Finding cancer by accident--and just in time

A 50-year old woman, Lucy*, came to the BVMI Healthcare Center in very poor health complaining of discomfort in her chest. She had not been to a doctor in a number of years. 

As part of our quality assurance program, we require every woman over 40 years of age to have a mammogram. Lucy's indicated a growth that was later diagnosed as malignant.

BVMI was able to call upon a physician in our network of more than 300 specialists in the community to help Lucy obtain a biopsy and surgery for removal of the tumor.
