Mercy Health Comprehensive Breast Center

Comprehensive breast care — complete peace of mind. At one time or another, every woman has a moment of concern. But finding a lump or abnormality in your breast doesn’t always point to cancer. In fact, the majority of breast conditions are non-cancerous. As the only centers of their kind in West Michigan, Mercy Health’s Comprehensive Breast Centers deliver prompt, personal, specialized care for all aspects of breast health — both cancerous and non-cancerous. At Mercy Health, we understand that your condition is unique, so we present you with the individualized care you deserve.
