Holland Hospital Mammography Locations:
We know that breast concerns affect not only your physical health, but other aspects of your well-being. Simple lifestyle changes not only optimize your general health, but can also decrease your risk for breast cancer. This includes a diet low in animal fat, plenty of fruits and vegetables and limited alcohol; regular aerobic exercise and maintaining a normal weight.
Screening mammograms save lives at any age. The key to detection is to
follow screening guidelines, which for most women at average risk means getting mammograms annually starting at age 40. Mammograms, clinical breast exams and breast awareness are a highly effective combination for early detection, when breast cancer is the most treatable.
Breast awareness is an important tool to monitor breast health and can help women detect changes, such as a lump, nipple discharge or pain, that wasn't felt before. If you notice changes in your breast, make an appointment with your doctor right away, even if a recent mammogram was normal.
Every woman deserves access to care, but not everyone can afford it.
Many women don't schedule a
screening mammogram because of financial challenges or inadequate insurance.
Holland Hospital has partnered with three local organizations to help potential
patients qualify for free breast health screenings. We encourage women who are
delaying their screening due to financial concerns to contact one of these
organizations and ask about the Holland Hospital Breast Care Fund.
