call now to book your free mammogram appointment Why are mammograms important? Screening mammograms are routine checks used to find early signs of cancer in women who have no breast problems or symptoms. They can find changes in the breast that are too small to be felt by a woman or her doctor. Early detection with mammograms is one of the reasons that most women (90%) are now surviving breast cancer.

Screentest - mobile Mammogram Appointments

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

Who is eligible for a mammogram? • Women 50 - 74: this group is most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, which is why they should plan to get a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer. • For women 40 - 49: screening is optional and they should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for their first mammogram, which are available online here. • Women 75 and over can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider, and may also self-refer. • Screening mammograms are not recommended for women under age 40. Women in this age group should discuss their breast cancer risk and screening options with their health care provider. To learn more about Screen Test, visit our website or call us at 1-800-667-0604.
