October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, but is also one of the most treatable with early detection. In fact, new treatments and early detection have pushed breast cancer’s five-year survival rate to over 90%.

Mammograms are recommended for women age 50 and over. Women ages 40-49 or with significant risk factors should discuss earlier screenings with their doctor.

Our trained and accredited mammography technologists provide 2D and 3D mammograms, which are covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare for those eligible patients.

Appointments are convenient for your schedule. You can book a mammogram during week days, in the evenings, and every Saturday (throughout the year) at ARC Far West and during regular weekday hours at ARC South 1st.

ARC patient and breast cancer survivor, Carla recommends, “Get your mammogram. You’re really not all that busy. Don’t get so caught up in the day-to-day things that you don’t take care of yourself.”

Visit ARCappointments.com or call your clinic to schedule your mammogram appointment.
