Mammograms and clinical breast exams are the best screening tools. Yearly mammograms should start at age 40 for most women, but women with a family history of breast cancer should talk to their doctors about being screened at a younger age.
Southern Regional offers mammography at two locations – Southern Regional Medical Center and Spivey Station.
