AHS Screen Test Mobile Mammography Clinic

Monday, July 15, 2019

The AHS Screen Test Mobile Mammography Clinic will be returning to the High Level Northwest Health Centre on July 15 - 18, 2019. Screen Test brings breast cancer screening to women across Alberta with its state-of-the-art mobile mammography clinic. Who is eligible for a mammogram? • Women 50 - 74: this group is most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, which is why they should plan to get a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer. • For women 40 - 49: screening is optional and they should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for their first mammogram, which are available online here. • Women 75 and over can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider, and may also self-refer. • Screening mammograms are not recommended for women under age 40.
