Early Detection: Your Best Ally

When cancers are found early, there's a better chance for successful treatment and recovery, and that the cancer has not spread to other areas of the body.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Missouri. Combat this with BJC mobile mammography vans, available to come to your company, where screening mammograms can conveniently be performed, thus increasing the availability of mammography to your female employees.

A mammogram may find tumors that are too small to feel or ductal carcinoma in situ -- abnormal cells in the lining of a breast duct -- which may become invasive cancer in some women. The ability of a mammogram to find breast cancer may depend on the size of the tumor and the density of the breast tissue.

Each mammogram is read by a board-certified radiologist, and the results are reported to the patient and her physician. Physician referrals also are provided to women who do not have a doctor.

Look at your female employees' health, get the BJC Mammography Vans at your place of business, and subscribe to BJC's free monthly e-newsletter or call us at 314.747.7234.
