Women ages 50 to 74 – the group most at risk of developing breast cancer – will have local access to mammography services this month when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program visits Maskwacis.
A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Maskwacis Health Services Community Health Centre east parking lot, south of building on July 19, 20, 21, and 22.
Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling toll-free 1-800-667-0604.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
