Put yourself first.

Mary, a breast cancer survivor, knows the importance of early detection. It is recommended that women age 40 and older have a screening mammogram every year to offer the best chance of finding breast cancer early and a better chance for a cure. Just like Mary did, put yourself first and schedule your annual mammogram today.

Recommendation guidelines may change depending on personal and family risk factors which should be discussed with your medical provider.

Mary's Story

"Most women can survive breast cancer if it is found and treated early. That’s why having a mammogram is so important. “It’s the right thing to do for yourself.”

Early detection is the best way to protect against breast cancer. 

That’s why at HSHS St. Mary's Hospital is transforming breast cancer screening and detection with the latest 3D mammography technology and a focus on your comfort. Our goal is to make breast health as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Instead of reviewing the breast tissue in a single, flat image, this technology folds together a series of images to create a 3D view, allowing doctors to see the tiniest details and find cancer in its earliest stages. 

Treatment

Using the latest technology and modern facilities, our trained oncologists, surgeons and staff members provide comprehensive and compassionate cancer care.
