Mobile Mammography Services Available in Smithville and Elgin

All women should have their first mammogram by the age of 40 and each year thereafter. Normally a mammogram would be $200.00, however, due to a generous donation from the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas there is no charge this year for eligible women. The Clinical Breast Exams will be provided by a Certified Cancer Screening Nurse. Education materials and breast selfexam teaching will also be offered at this screening.

Eligibility Criteria: * Must be at least 40 years old. * No implants, not pregnant, not breast feeding, and no current breast problems.

* No insurance, Medicaid, Medicare or have a high yearly deductible. Low income.

* No previous mammogram within the past year.

* No history of breast cancer.

The Seton Cancer Screening Mobile Mammography Unit will be in Smithville on July 1 & 2, 2009 and in Elgin on August 25, 2009. Women need to call to schedule the appointments in advance. To schedule your appointment, please call Seton Cancer Screening at 512-505-5528 or toll-free-1-866-294-4923.
