The Breast Center at Houston Northwest Medical Center now allows women over the age of 40 to schedule their own digital screening mammogram without a referral from their primary care physician. Self-initiated digital screening mammograms are intended to offer women an easy option for scheduling a screening mammogram and helping detect breast cancer before symptoms appear.
To schedule a mammogram, call 281-440-2600.
Early detection is one of the most powerful tools in fighting breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year after age 40. It is also recommends that women age 40 and older without symptoms have clinical breast exams annually.
