Women ages 50 to 74 — the group most at risk of developing breast cancer — will have local access to mammography services later this month when Alberta Health Services’ Screen Test program visits Castor.
A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Castor Community Hall, 4501 48th Ave. on Oct. 26th-28th.
Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling toll-free 1-800-667-0604.
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
Due to COVID-19, Screen Test is taking a number of precautions to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. Details will be shared when you call to book your appointment.
