October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and tonight, Regional Medical Center will be offering Twilight Mammograms.
RMC Radiology Manager Megan Demmer says mammograms are important in detecting breast cancer, which is the second leading cause of death for women in the United States.
Once you reach 40 years old, you should be scheduling a yearly mammogram.
And breast cancer doesn’t just affect women. While breast cancer in men is rare, it does exist – an estimated 2,600 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed this year.
If you haven’t had your mammogram yet this year, Demmer says you’ll have an opportunity tonight at RMC with the Twilight Mammograms.
Once again, the number for RMC Radiology is 927-7338.
