Mobile mammography service to visit Wetaskiwin this week

Women ages 50 to 74, the group most at risk of developing breast cancer, will have local access to mammography services this month when Alberta Health Service’s Screen Test program visits Wetaskiwin.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.

A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at Wetaskiwin Community Health Centre at 5610 40 Ave.

The mobile mammography trailer will be in Wetaskiwin July 9, 10, 12 to 17, and 19 to 24. Wetaskiwin residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling toll-free 1-800-667-0604.
