Women ages 45-74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program arrives in the community next month.
A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Fairview Health Complex (10628 110 St.) on Oct. 12 and 13, and Oct. 16-19. Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.
Screen Test is improving access to cancer screening for thousands of women in Alberta communities where mammography is not readily available.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
