Ross Memorial Hospital offering Mammogram drop-in day

Have you been putting off having a mammogram?

Ross Memorial’s Diagnostic Imaging Department is participating in a special mammogram drop-in event on May 11th.

Women between the ages of 50 and 74 who are overdue for a mammogram, may drop-in anytime between 7:00am and 5:00pm for this important breast cancer screening test. Mammograms are used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women experiencing no symptoms. They can also be used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain, skin dimpling or nipple discharge.

For more information, call 705-328-6175.
