Discounted Mammograms

This year it is estimated that about 230,000 women will be diagnosed with a new case of breast cancer, according to breastcancer.org.
With October being ‘Breast Cancer Awareness Month’, Singing River Health System is getting a head start on spreading awareness. Starting from today until November 21st, the hospital system will be offering discounted mammograms at three different Coast locations. You can schedule an appointment for the discounted $80 mammogram at their locations in Ocean Springs Medical Park, Singing River Medical Park in Pascagoula, or North Bay Diagnostics in Cedar Lake Medical Plaza.
Rachel Nelson, operations manager at Ocean Springs Hospital Radiology, said, “So, it’s very important that women keep up with preventative maintenance. It is recommended with the American Cancer Society that ladies have mammograms starting at age 40 once a year. This is very important, we like to do this once a year for all of our ladies out there in the public that maybe don’t have insurance or their insurance doesn’t cover preventative screenings. So come out and see us.”
For more information or to make an appointment, call 228-818-1036.
