For some, access to mammography is limited due to insurance, location or lack of health care facilities. Our Mobile Mammography unit helps address these issues, bringing University of Michigan Health expertise and services into more communities.
And while there isn’t a true cure for cancer, with early detection and treatment the long-term survival rate for early-stage breast cancer patients is very good.

SHOULD YOU GET SCREENED?
If you are over 40, discuss with your provider if screening is appropriate for you. Once you turn 50, a screening mammogram is recommended yearly.
Other factors to consider and discuss with your provider include a family history of breast cancer or any breast abnormality noticed during a self-exam.
