BMH Mammography Services
For most women, a mammography provides the best way to find breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is usually the most highly successful.* A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray of your breasts that can detect many changes that are too small or too deep to feel. Mammograms are considered safe, quick and relatively painless. They are available through a doctor's orders or, in some cases, a self-referral. Annual mammograms are recommended for all women ages 40 and over.

A physician’s order is required to schedule a mammogram. When you are ready to schedule your mammogram, call your physician’s office and let them know. If you don’t have a physician, call the Bingham Memorial Women’s Center at 782-3900.
*The American Cancer Society recommends that women at especially high risk for breast cancer have a yearly mammogram and MRI scan beginning at age 30.
