At Medical Center Arlington, we believe mammograms are one of the best ways to protect your health. To encourage more women to get the yearly screening, we’re offering a special during the entire month of April. Next month you can receive a mammogram for $50 if you have no current breast problems.
A mammogram is an x-ray or digital image of the breast used in screening for breast cancer. Routine mammograms have been shown to save lives, since catching cancer early in its development improves prognosis. There is a 93 percent chance of 20 years of survival when the disease is treated early.
The National Cancer Institute recommends women 40 and older with no significant risk factors should have yearly mammograms. Women with more risk factors should talk to their doctor about having mammograms starting before 40. Breast cancer consists of abnormal tissue made from cells that have multiplied uncontrollably.
The Breast Imaging Services at Medical Center Arlington are conducted in our renovated mammography suite. Our caring team of mammogram technologists helps to make you feel secure. We strive to make your experience as quick and comfortable as possible with our MammoPad, or Softer Mammograms. A foam cushion is placed between your breast and the machine to provide a softer and warmer mammogram. The procedure takes just a few minutes and then you’re on your way! Please call 817-472-4857 to schedule your appointment for our $50 mammogram during the month of April today! You may also visit us online for more information.
