Content Provided By Siteman Cancer Center

Why does it matter where you go?  Because early detection is the single greatest factor in improving treatment and outcomes in breast cancer. Siteman Cancer Center’s unique “specialists at every step” approach leads to earlier detection.

You probably already know that women over the age of 40 should have a mammogram every year, but many women still do not. Why not? Because they are busy; working, taking care of the household, kids, husband, parents, pets etc. We understand you take care of everyone else first, and there is never enough time to take care of yourself. But this is too important to put off any longer, so we want to give you a good reason to schedule your Siteman mammogram now and take care of yourself.
