Women's healthcare for diagnosing breast cancer using mammogram for early detection and ob obyn care services

At Community Hospital San Bernardino, we care for you, no matter what life changes you experience.


Breast Health

We offer comprehensive breast health management – from screenings to treatment – at our state-of-the-art state of the art imaging center in San Bernardino. 

  • Screening and diagnostic digital mammogram
  • Breast ultrasound
  • 3D breast imaging with soft flex paddles for gentler compression

A screening and diagnostic digital mammogram could make a difference in your life and your future. Early cancer detection can save lives. If you and your doctor want extra assurance, we offer ultrasounds to help look for changes such as lumps, cysts, and any abnormality that might be hard to see in dense breast tissue.

You can also find out if you are predisposed to breast cancer with our hereditary (genetic) cancer risk testing.

Community Hospital San Bernardino offers the latest surgery techniques and reconstructive procedures including minimally invasive options that use laparoscopic (minimal points of incision) for faster healing.

If you experience breast or chest muscle pain, our medical experts can help you navigate pain relief in addition to treatment plans to address any underlying medical issues.

Common signs and symptoms of breast cancer include:

  • Lump in the breast
  • Swelling of part or all of the breast
  • Skin changes on the nipple or breast
  • Nipple discharge that’s not breast milk
  • Inverted nipple
  • Change in appearance, size, density, or shape of the breast or nipple
  • Thickening of skin

Breast Cancer Risk Factors

A number of characteristics can increase a man or woman’s chance for developing breast cancer. Women are at a higher risk for the disease, but other factors that increase your risk include:

  • Lifestyle habits, such as being sedentary, smoking, and consuming alcohol
  • Dense breast tissue
  • Early menstruation before 12 or late menopause after 55
  • Family or personal history of breast cancer
  • Previous chest radiation therapy

Gynecologic Health

We are dedicated to meeting the health care needs for women of all ages in a convenient and comfortable environment.

  • Gynecological Ultrasound

  • Hysteroscopy

  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomies (with or without the removal of the fallopian tubes and ovaries)

  • Minimally-invasive procedure options that provide faster recovery

  • Uterine Fibroid Removal

  • Endometriosis Treatment

  • Ovarian Cyst Removal

If a woman experiences one or more of the following symptoms on most days within a three week period, they should discuss their concerns with their doctor.

  • Increased abdominal size / persistent bloating (not bloating that comes and goes)

  • Difficulty eating/feeling full quickly

  • Abdominal or pelvic pain

  • Needing to pass urine more urgently or more frequently

There can be other symptoms which also occur, including change in bowel habits, abnormal vaginal bleeding, fatigue, and unexpected weight loss or weight gain (in this instance around the abdomen). However these are less helpful when a doctor is trying to determine whether or not ovarian cancer is the cause.

Symptoms of ovarian cancer can often be confused with other less serious conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders. The majority of patients are identified in the advanced stages when the disease becomes more difficult to treat. Awareness of the risk factors, signs and symptoms, as well as your family history are all important to identifying the disease sooner.
