Free Breast Cancer Screenings for Members

October 5, 2017



October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not only is it the perfect time to get an annual breast cancer screening (or mammogram), it’s free for members of Louisiana Healthcare Connections.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • About 1 in 8 women develop life-threatening breast cancer in their lives.
  • In 2017, about 315,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected in the U.S.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women.

Having a mammogram every year is the best way to stay healthy. A mammogram is an X-ray of your breasts. The screening usually takes about 20 minutes. It can help your doctor find breast cancer early, when it is small. This is when it is easiest to treat.

Stay healthy. Schedule your annual mammogram today!
