Information About Mammograms:
Mammography is the best screening tool for breast cancer used today. It can find cancers at an early stage, when they are small (often too small to be felt) and most responsive to treatment. Mammograms can be done in:
- Certified radiology and imaging centers
- Mammography clinics
- Hospital radiology departments
- Mobile vans
- Some physician offices
If you are in need of a screening clinical breast exam or mammogram, or a diagnostic service, please call us at 951-676-7465. We can assist you in finding a local screening service. For women or men that are uninsured, or underinsured (unable to pay the costs for co-pays or insurance premiums, or do not qualify for other programs), programs are available for a Komen-funded breast cancer screening or diagnostic service.
If you need a mammogram and are uninsured, please contact:
