As part of our Wellness Program, we are proud to introduce Methodist Mobile Mammography.

Mobile Mammography

Methodist Mobile Mammography features the latest mammography breast screening technology in the convenience of a mobile unit. 

  • Creates an image of your breast
  • Provides incredibly sharp images that can reveal the smallest abnormalities 
  • Reduces the need for additional imaging

Methodist Mobile Mammography is designed for screening women ages 40 and older who do not have noticeable breast cancer symptoms (new lumps or masses, breast pain, skin changes) following self-exams.

Why Mammograms Are Important

Early Detection is Key

One out of every eight women will have breast cancer during her lifetime, but with early detection, the cure rate for breast cancer can be as high as 96%. 

A screening mammogram is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread.
