Our mammography technicians understand their patients' questions and concerns about breast cancer, because they are women too. Our highly-trained, female staff members help women understand more about breast cancer and what can be done for protection. A mammogram can detect breast cancer in the absolute earliest stages--as much as two years before it can be felt in a self-examination.
Never Had a Mammogram?
If you are between the ages of 35 and 40, it is time to schedule a baseline mammogram. After age 40, you should have a mammogram every year. These guidelines are the most recent recommendations from the American Cancer Society. They are based upon the latest studes in breast cancer prevention. If you are due for a mammogram, call Women's Services:
