Essentia Health offering Saturday mammography clinics in October

Make regular mammograms part of your lifelong breast-care routine. At Essentia Health, we provide high-quality mammography by compassionate experts who help make the experience as comfortable as possible.

Routine screening mammograms can help your provider detect breast cancer before you have symptoms. Diagnostic mammograms help identify cancer after you or your provider notice warning signs, such as a breast lump.

When breast cancer is caught early, it’s easier to treat. That’s why Essentia recommends women with an average risk of developing breast cancer get a mammogram every year beginning at age 40. You and your doctor may decide that you need mammograms less often after you turn 75.

To make screening more convenient, Essentia is offering the following Saturday mammography clinics in October:

Dates: Saturday, Oct. 10, 17, 24 and 31
Time: Between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Location: Essentia Health-Duluth Clinic First Street Building, Breast Center
420 E First St, First Floor

Call (218) 786-1019 to schedule your mammography appointment. No referral is needed.
