National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
TYRONE – In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Tyrone Hospital Radiology Department will expand its hours for screenings mammograms to include Oct. 26.
The expanded hours are to give women more options for getting their screening mammogram scheduled. Appointments for screening mammograms are now being scheduled.
Mammograms are the best tool available to help with the early detection of breast cancer. The American Cancer Society and the Society of Breast Imaging recommend women of average risk for breast cancer begin annual screening mammography at age 40 years.
Women who wish to schedule a screening mammogram must have a physician order. An appointment is also required. Appointments may be scheduled by calling the radiology department at 814-684-6385.
