MAMMOGRAMS SAVE LIVES!!!!
45.6% of women age 40 and over living in Bucks County are not receiving annual
screening mammograms. All women age 40+ need to get an annual mammogram.
What IS a mammogram?
A mammogram is an x-ray of your breast. It can find a breast
irregularity too small for you, your nurse or your doctor to feel.
WHY should I have a mammogram?
Chances of having breast cancer increase as you get older. You could have
lumps in your breast that you can’t feel. A mammogram can detect them.
Finding a problem early is important for better outcomes!
Afraid of what they might find?
Better to find potential problems early and take care of them.
Afraid it might hurt?
Some say it is uncomfortable, others say it isn’t.
Concerned about the cost?
Insurance companies are required to pay for annual
mammograms without any deductible or co-pay.
If you don’t have
insurance, there are programs in Bucks County that provide this service at
no cost to you. Call your local hospital and ask.
Don’t have the time?
Hospitals in Bucks County work to offer mammograms at times convenient
for you. Call or check the website of your local hospital for available times.
Your family needs you.
Do it for them!
