Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the U.S. and affects those of every ethnicity and socioeconomic background. According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. An estimated 276,480 women and an estimated 2,620 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
Although these statistics seem dire, improving treatments and early detection will allow many of these patients to become breast cancer survivors. A mammogram is the first line of defense and a key player in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Navicent Health offers the latest mammography technology, including 3D mammography backed by Profound AI, proven for faster, more accurate detection of breast cancer.
“During October, we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this is a great time to get your annual screening mammogram. However, many people may not come for a mammogram if they’re uninsured or underinsured. We want to create opportunities for everyone to have a screening mammogram, because we know early detection and treatment are key in the fight against breast cancer. That’s why we’re offering discounts for self-pay patients during the month of October,” said Todd Dixon, CEO of Navicent Health Baldwin.
