If you’re like many women, you’re probably so busy working, running errands, cleaning the house, and taking care of your family that you sometimes don’t make time for yourself. Relaxing with a cup of tea, unwinding with a good book, or going to a movie with a friend are all ways you can do something for yourself. You also can take care of yourself by having your annual screening mammogram.
During spring break would be a good time to schedule your annual screening mammogram before going to the lake for a few days or heading out for a fun family mini-vacation. Screening mammograms don’t take much time and only need to be done once a year for women over the age of 40, as recommended by the American Cancer Society.
At Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake, women over the age of 40 can schedule their own screening mammogram without a referral from their primary care physician. The hospital is a Certified Softer Mammogram Provider that uses the MammoPad®, a soft foam cushion that decreases overall discomfort and is designed to provide a softer, more comfortable mammogram. Convenient evening and weekend hours are available for appointments by calling 214-324-6220.
To learn more about screening mammograms and other recommended health exams, Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake is offering a free Women’s Health Tests & Screenings slideguide. This handy pocket guide also describes symptoms and treatments for a variety of conditions, and lists the latest American Cancer Society guidelines. Call 866-764-3627 for your free copy today.
