DON’T MISS THE SIGNS OF BREAST CANCER GET SCREENED. Are you ignoring possible signs of cancer? Since cancer encompasses such a large group of diseases, it can cause almost any sign or symptom. And sometimes, cancer is a silent disease with no symptoms in the early stages. That’s why undergoing recommended cancer screening tests is so important. The American Cancer Society recommends all women 40 and older have annual mammograms and clinical breast exams (CBEs). All women in their 20s and 30s should have a CBE every three years. Mammography is the gold standard for breast cancer screening. Columbus Community Hospital offers 3-D mammography, a system that detects tumors hidden by overlapping breast tissue and provides a more accurate diagnosis than standard 2-D digital mammography. It is easier to treat and beat cancer when you detect it early, before it has spread to other areas. Don’t ignore the signs. Follow the guidelines and schedule your mammogram today. To learn more about 3-D mammography or schedule your mammogram with CCH, visit columbushosp.org or call 402-562-3180. Most health insurance plans will cover your mammogram 100%, so there’s no cost to you. Always check with your health insurance company first to make sure your mammogram is covered.
