It's a fact you've heard over and over again: Early detection saves lives.

It's very true with breast cancer, too, and we wanted to really emphasize that during Breast Cancer Awareness month. About 70 percent of breast cancer cases are discovered through self-exams, and mammograms are recommended every year for women 40 and older.

Thankfully, our friends at Prosser Memorial Health make it quick and easy to get a high-quality mammogram. They offer Hologic Genius 3D Mammography, which reveals heightened detail that "allows providers to examine breast tissue layer by layer," according to Amanda Hibbs, Mammographer at Prosser Memorial Health. "This means fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below."

It's also the "only mammogram FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts," said Hibbs.

Your mammogram will be more accurate and more comfortable with this technology, so if it's time for your annual mammogram — or even if a few years have passed since your last mammogram — call 509-786-5596 to schedule your mammogram today. They even offer Saturday appointments!
