Why Is This Important?

Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States. Deaths from breast cancer have declined over time, but remain the second leading cause of cancer death among women.

Story Behind the Curve
What We Do

A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Doctors use a mammogram to look for early signs of breast cancer. Regular mammograms are the best tests doctors have to find breast cancer early, sometimes up to three years before it can be felt.

Are you worried about the cost? LCHD offers free or low-cost mammograms through our Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (BCCP) and our Screening and Survivor Support (SASS) for Breast Cancer program.
