Get Your Screening Done!



Last year my Dr. wanted me to get a routine mammogram since I'm over 40 😣 She also ordered a Chest CT Scan. I had planned to not get the mammogram, my thinking was that I was to young still & heard horror stories about how painful they are. I went ahead & got the CT scan. A lump in my breast showed up, so I went ahead with the mammogram with an ultrasound. Ladies...it did not hurt at all!! Those tests came back abnormal & they next wanted to do a biopsy. We were scared. Cancer is all we had in our minds. I had my biopsy done at the hospital. I'll be honest, that was no fun.  We got the results - no cancer!  Ladies, don't put it off, get your routine screenings!

Sunrise Health System hospitals are offering $75 3-D digital screening mammograms for those without insurance.  You must be at least 40 which is the recommend age to have a screening done.

I had mine done at Red Rock Radiology and they were so awesome! They made me feel so comfortable and the process was so quick and easy.  Did not hurt at all like all the horror stories I have read! You can schedule your mammogram with them by calling 855-476-1268.
