If you have put your mammogram on hold, wait no longer. Finding breast cancer early can reduce your risk of dying from the disease. In fact, it is recommended women should begin getting yearly mammograms at age 40 or earlier if they are at high risk.
A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breasts making it possible to detect lumps or abnormal growths in women who have no signs or symptoms of breast cancer.
George Regional Radiology offers high-quality digital mammography. A digital mammogram is one of the easiest steps you can take for your health. The procedure takes about 20 minutes and discomfort is minimal for most women.
“We are committed to the fight against breast cancer and we take pride in offering digital mammography, along with compassionate, high-quality care, right here at George Regional Radiology,” says Christy Pope, Director of Radiology, George Regional Health System.
Getting your mammogram, having clinical breast exams, and breast self-examinations on a regular basis are the best ways to detect breast cancer early.
