Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the perfect time to schedule your mammogram! With extended hours from 7 am to 6:30 pm to fit your busy life, and convenient online appointment requests, we make it easy to prioritize your health this October.
Don’t know when to begin receiving mammograms or how frequently you should schedule appointments? If you are at average risk for breast cancer, follow these easy guidelines:
Women are at higher risk for breast cancer if they have a personal history of breast cancer; a family history of breast cancer; a genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer (such as BRCA); or have had radiation therapy to the chest before the age of 30. Consult with your gynecologist or primary care physician for screening recommendations.
All women should be familiar with how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to a health care provider right away.
