Early detection can save your life.
A mammogram is conducted to help screen for or diagnose breast cancer. Cancer that is discovered at an early stage is more easily treated and cured. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. The good news is, when detected early, the breast cancer survival rate is 98 percent.
If you're a woman over 40, schedule your mammography screening today at the Cottage Center for Advanced Imaging.
We offer state-of-the-art digital mammography which can help pinpoint cancer in its earliest stages. Digital mammography provides crisp, clear, easy-to-understand images, and it delivers rapid results for physicians and patients.
The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline screening mammography for every woman between the ages of 35 and 39 (possibly earlier, if there's a family history of breast cancer), and an annual mammogram each year after the age of 40.
