MAMMOGRAPHY CAN SAVE YOU LIFE!
If you art a healthy woman over 40 who never has had a mammogram, the American Cancer
Society recommends that you have this simple life-saving procedure now. Since one woman
in 10 develops breast cancer at some point in her lifetime, the urgency is real.
A screening mammogram is an x-ray of the breeast using extremely low dosages of radiation
(usually comparable to dental x-rays) and is designed to find very early cancers.
A female technologist who is highly trained in mammography will perform the examination.
These images are then interpreted by a Board Certified Radiologist, and a report is sent to
your own doctor, h takes only a few minutes, and can detect incipient breast cancer as small
as the period at the end of this sentence.
Early detection (II months sooner than a lump can be felt) not only permits treatment
before the problem becomes serious, but the cure rate is over 90 percent. Mammography
cannot only save your life, but help you avoid the need for disfiguring surgery, too.
You don’t need to have been a previous patient of ours to receive this screening, but you do
need to make an appointment at a time convenient to you.
