FREE Screening Mammograms will be offered at Franciscan Breast Center in Burien on Tuesday, June 4.

This free event will run from 5 – 8 p.m.

A screening mammogram is a routine exam for women who have no sign or symptoms of breast disease. It uses X-ray to make an image of the breast. The goal of a screening mammogram is to identify breast abnormalities as early as possible. If breast cancer is found early, there are more treatment options and a better chance for survival. CHI Franciscan advises women to get screening mammograms every year starting at age 40.*

If you haven’t had a screening mammogram in two years or more, we’re offering FREE screenings for women who are uninsured or underinsured.

* No clinical breast exam needed

* No referral necessary
