Early detection is critical in treating breast cancer. The Mercy Regional Cancer Center will host a free breast cancer screening for qualifying women 50 years of age and older who have previously participated in the Every Woman Counts – Breast Cancer Early Detection Program. The screening will take place on Thursday, July 29, 2010.
The breast cancer screening involves three components:
Mammogram – an X-ray of your breasts can be a powerful way to detect breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage.
Breast Self Examination Education – provided by a Mercy oncology nurse.
Clinical Breast Examination – a physician or affiliated health care providers will conduct the examination.
To find out if you qualify for this state-funded program, please call Mercy Medical Center Redding at (530) 24-MERCY (246-3729). Appointments are limited and women must pre-register no later than June 25, 2010.
