The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. Other organizations cite every other year as the optimal time to get checked.
My doctor told me to get one EVERY YEAR! She even chuckled when I mentioned it. My insurance pays for it, so why not.
Talk to your doctor and see what they say, then make the choice that’s right for you.
Solis Mammography wants women to reclaim the month of October for national breast health and dispel the fear and anxiety created around pink ribbons. Solis wants women to know that 7 out of 8 women will not get breast cancer and that their annual mammogram is a way to focus on empowerment, choice and peace of mind.
As the nation’s largest independent provider of screening and diagnostics for breast health services, Solis wants women to Rethink P.I.N.K. this October and focus on breast health.
The color “pink” is rethought and becomes an acronym, “P.I.N.K.”
• Peace of Mind. Solis Mammography has trademarked the Peace of Mind Mammogram™ to reflect their promise of offering such an exceptional experience that women won’t avoid getting the mammogram they need. The environment of each center and exceptional quality of patient care offered by specialists in breast imaging leads to peace of mind for the patients they serve.
• Incredible Service. Solis Mammography’s entire team is deeply committed to the women and physicians they serve. From online scheduling and fast results delivered by secure email within 24 to 48 hours, the company is proud to cite that 98 percent of their patients would give them a positive recommendation to family or friends.
• Not what you Expect. While many women associate mammograms with pain, Solis’ breast dedicated technologists are highly trained in breast compression and placement. This results in 89 percent of their patients reporting little to no discomfort during their exam.
• Knowledge is Power. Perhaps most central to the Rethink P.I.N.K. campaign is the common statistic most women cite – that 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. Solis encourages women to remember that this also means 7 in 8 women will NOT get breast cancer. But if you are the 1 in 8, you want to find any anomaly as EARLY as possible, so that your treatment is as EASY as possible.
For the entire month of October including Oct. 16 which is National Mammography Day Rethink P.I.N.K. and schedule your mammogram.
***Note – Many Solis centers are offering extended weekday and Saturday hours during the month of October. There are 18 centers across DFW. Visit our website to find the most convenient center: http://www.solismammo.com//find-a-center/Texas/DFW
