Thanks to current technology, mammograms allow women immediate access to detect the presence of early stages of breast cancer. If treated early, breast cancer is deemed a very achievable battle that most definitely results in survival.

 

Though it is standard to begin advising women to have mammograms between ages 40 and 49 at the frequency prescribed by a doctor, women between ages 50 to 74 should get a mammogram every 2 years.

 

We’re excited to have the Mercy Health Mobile Mammography Van coming back to our centers this year to provide onsite access! 

 

MercyHealth's Mobile Mammography Van will be scheduling appointments for 2021.
