Mammograms are a crucial step in women maintaining their health. The excellent staff at St. Elizabeth’s Women’s Imaging Center is skilled at offering compassionate and knowledgeable breast and digital mammography services. We are here to make that annual mammogram just a little bit easier. Come and see us.
When Do I Need A Mammogram?
- Women age 40 and older should have an annual mammogram, according to the American Cancer Society. Your doctor may want to do a baseline mammogram at age 35.
- Women with breast pain should schedule a doctor’s appointment.
- Women who have dense breasts may need extra evaluation as dense (gland) tissue makes it harder to read a mammogram.
- Women who feel a lump or abnormal growth should immediately schedule an appointment with their doctor.
