Mobile Mammogram Screening

May 30 - May 31

Mammograms can saves lives! The Screen Test mobile mammogram clinic will be in Siksika Nation May 30 & 31, providing FREE breast cancer screening for women ages 40+. Siksikawa are invited to call 1-800-667-0604 (toll-free) today to book an appointment.
The Screen Test service uses mobile mammography clinics to ensure eligible women in rural communities are able to get breast cancer screening. These trailers are “clinics on wheels” complete with a reception area, dressing rooms and an exam room.
Who should be screened?
Women 45 to 74: This group is most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, and should plan to have a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer.
Women 40 to 44: Screening is optional and they should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for their first mammogram in Alberta, which is available online here: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/frm-20078.pdf
Women 75 and over: Can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider.
Screening mammograms are not recommended for those under age 40. Please talk to your health care provider if concerned about having an increased risk of breast cancer.
