No Excuse For Putting Off Mammograms This October

khts_healthIn celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center is offering a special cash price for digital screening mammograms during October. In addition, the Center has grants and other programs available for patients who are uninsured or underinsured and need financial assistance for screenings.

When asked why they don’t get annual mammograms, patients sometimes respond that they are afraid of finding out they might have cancer. Ignoring breast cancer doesn’t make it go away…and discovering cancer in its early stages increases treatment options and allows a much greater chance of survival and positive outcomes.

Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center was created through the experiences of breast cancer survivors and designed with a woman’s physical and emotional needs in mind. Their goal is to improve access to breast imaging services in the Santa Clarita Valley, make it easier and more convenient for women to have their annual mammograms, and reduce the anxiety associated with breast cancer detection.

The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Imaging Center has its own entrance, a home-like atmosphere, and friendly staff. Located on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital’s campus, the center has performed more than 79,790 procedures and detected 452 breast cancers. The center offers the latest digital technology, highly skilled medical and technical professionals, and input and collegial consultancy from the area’s leading oncologists and other medical specialists.

According to the American Cancer Society, timely screenings can reduce breast cancer mortality in women age 40 and older by 17 to 30%. With no history of breast cancer in the family, women should schedule an annual mammogram at age 40. Beginning at the age of 20, women are recommended to have a clinical breast exam by their medical provider, and discuss options for screenings if they have a history of breast cancer in their family.

Appointments can be scheduled Monday through Friday, including lunchtimes and into the evening, as well as some weekends, by calling 661-253-8822. The Imaging Center is located at 23929 McBean Parkway, Suite 101, Valencia.
