Good Shepherd goes on the road for breast health

Good Shepherd Medical Center (GSMC) is introducing Longview's first-ever mobile breast health clinic.  The hospital's Digital Mobile Breast Center is another long step towards furthering breast health awareness and increasing early detection of breast cancer.  This traveling mammogram center will take its services to patients who might otherwise have trouble getting to stationary clinics.  Businesses, civic groups, regional medical facilities, health fairs and Good Shepherd's outlying clinics will be the venues for screenings that are easily accessible and affordable. The vehicle will utilize screening mammography services to insure area patients receive regular and convenient check-ups. Also intended to further health education and community outreach the unit features the most state-of-the-art equipment and a highly trained, all-female mammography team.   Women are not accepted for screenings if: • She has already been diagnosed with breast cancer. • Has a new breast problem such as a lump, changes in the flesh or discharge. • Is breast-feeding or has breast-fed during the past nine months.  Women with a family history of breast cancer are particularly urged to avail themselves of this new resource, and/or speak to their doctors about the scheduling and frequency of screenings.
