The University of Kansas Health System Pawnee Valley Campus announces the Imaging Department now offers Digital Mammography.

A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree (mother, sister, daughter) relative who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.

At age 40, it is recommended that all women receive a mammogram every year by a healthcare provider. It is also important for men to be just as aware as women when it comes to breast cancer health. The lifetime risk for breast cancer for a man is 1 in 1,000. Early detection is a key role in prevention of the second most common cancer today.

Pawnee Valley Campus Imaging can be reached at 620-285-8691 for any questions or concerns. Mammograms can be scheduled with your primary care provider.
