Mammograms for Breast Problems

If you detect a change in your breasts, you do not want to wait days to find out what is wrong. That is why Womancare at Saint Francis Medical Center and Saint Francis Clinic Poplar Bluff deliver priority mammogram results.

The American Cancer Society recommends women undergo annual mammograms beginning at age 40. However, if a woman or her physician notice a lump or change in breast tissue, the patient may need a diagnostic 3-D mammogram.

At Womancare, our experienced radiologist reads the diagnostic mammogram and can send the patient for an ultrasound, if necessary. If the patient needs a surgical consult that same day, we have an on-site surgeon and nurse practitioner available. The quick turnaround of results offers patients peace of mind.

Three-dimensional mammograms are also available to patients in the Poplar Bluff area. Call Saint Francis Clinic Poplar Bluff at 573-727-5500 for more information or to schedule a mammogram. Walk-ins are also welcome.

To schedule a 3-D mammogram in the Cape Girardeau area, call Womancare at 573-331-5209.
