Mammograms Save Lives

Other than Skin cancer, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. Breast Cancer screening means checking woman’s breast for cancer before she has any symptoms. Getting Mammograms regularly (X-Ray of the breast) is the best way to find breast cancer early and when it is easier to treat. It is recommended that most women who are 40 to 75 years old should have a mammogram every year, or as recommended by a clinician. Mammograms are covered by most health insurance programs. You can get a screening mammogram without any out of pocket costs. If cost is a worry for you, talk to your clinician. There are several programs that can help cover the cost of a mammogram. Ask your clinician about what options are available to you and how you can qualify.

SCHC is committed to Women’s Health and has partnered with MD Imaging to help make it possible for every women to have a mammogram. You may not need an order or referral from your clinician, but no matter what you can do it for yourself and for your loved ones. Call MD Imaging at (530) 243-1297 to make an appointment. Be sure to let them know you are a patient of SCHC. You can even ask for an appointment online by clicking HERE
