Mammograms

Book your mammogram.Regular breast screening is one of the most important methods to safeguard your health. At the Athens Regional Breast Health Center, we here to help you with your mammogram.

A mammogram is an X-ray that uses low dose radiation to produce an image of the inside of the breast. Mammography is a proven way to find most "silent" breast cancers in women without symptoms.

Mammogram Recommendations

The American Cancer Society recommends the following guidelines for early detection of breast cancer:

Age 40 and over:
Have a mammogram every year
Have a clinical breast exam by a health care professional every year*
Do a breast self-exam each month

Age 20-39:
Do a breast self-exam each month
Have a clinical breast exam by a health care
professional every year

*The clinical breast exam should be done just prior to the scheduled mammogram.
