As we celebrate the special women in our lives, Mount Sinai Medical Center is urging area residents to show their mothers they care by reminding them to get a mammogram. While it may not sound like a traditional Mother’s Day gift, having a simple conversation about having a mammogram could help save a life.
During the month of May, the Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center is pleased to offer digital mammograms for only $50. In addition, if you have insurance, screening mammograms are free of charge year-round with no co-payment or deductible required.
Women age 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection of breast cancer through screenings improves the chances that breast cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage and treated successfully.
Mount Sinai recognizes the importance of preventive breast health and is committed to providing the most comprehensive breast care. The Lila and Harold Menowitz Breast Center at Mount Sinai provides screening, diagnostics, treatment and support services for breast health, and has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology as a result of its focus on service, research, technology and expertise.
Mount Sinai has the distinction of being the first breast center in Florida to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. This accreditation is given only to those centers that have passed a rigorous evaluation, demonstrate they can comply with the accreditation program’s high standards and are committed to providing the highest quality care in breast disease diagnosis, treatment, support and follow-up care. Mount Sinai’s reduced rate digital mammograms are available at one of two convenient locations in Miami Beach or Aventura. To book your appointment today, call 305-535-3434.
