If youíre 40 or older get a mammogram every year. Itís the best way to find breast cancer early.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women, other than skin cancer. Having regular mammograms can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer.
Mammography plays a central part in early detection of breast cancer. When women take steps to protect their health through regular exams, the results can be life saving.
The Harnett County Health Department works to provide women access to high-quality screening mammograms, through the Rex Mobile Mammography. Funding assistance is available for women who are uninsured who meet specific criteria, through the Rex Certificate program.
