With so many recent advances in detecting cancer (not to mention the increasingly popular genetic tests women with a familial history of breast cancer undergo), New York City residents can feel assured that their preventative needs will be met at Queens's own Mount Sinai Hospital.

Mount Sinai Queens was recently honored by Shareing and Careing, a non-profit organization that aims to provide full support for everyone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. Shareing and Careing held its 16th anniversary benefit and silent auction November 17 at Astoria's Riccardo's by the Bridge, where Mount Sinai Queens was presented with a Community Recognition Award, honoring the hospital's hard work in battling breast cancer as well as the steps the staff has taken in preventative care. Caryn Schwab, the hospital's executive director, accepted the award, along with David Nierman, MD, MMM, the vice president of medical affairs.

In her acceptance speech, Schwab highlighted Mount Sinai's efforts to provide educational support and preventative care to uninsured and underinsured women. Dr. Nierman also discussed the hospital's long list of breast cancer treatment and preventative options, such as digital mammography, biopsy techniques, and the many advances in post-surgical breast reconstruction.

Not only does Mount Sinai educate women about breast cancer treatment, provide preventative care, and offer post-surgical breast reconstruction, but the hospital also treats a number of other breast conditions that could lead to breast cancer, including benign breast disease (such as breast pain and fibroids). Women who are treated for these benign breast conditions are often eligible for the hospital's comprehensive early detection program, which provides at-risk women with breast exams, mammograms, and other preventative procedures.
