Hospital Offers Mammogram Special for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Northeastern Health Systems Sequoyah in Sallisaw is working hard to make sure that everyone can afford a yearly mammogram.

To help make the cost of a state-of the-art mammogram affordable, the hospital is offering $75 cash special mammograms through Oct. 31. 

Early detection is key, Andrea Weber, Northeastern’s director of medical imaging, said Tuesday. Women aren’t the only patients that need mammograms, she said. Men, though it’s relatively rare, also get breast cancer. Men often need ultrasound exams as well as mammograms, and those are also available at the hospital.

When asked how important Northeastern’s offer is, Weber said, “This is huge just being able to provide services in a place where people don’t have to travel.”

The hospital has state-of-the-art 3-D mammogram machines and a CT scanner that can detect cancer even faster. The equipment is comparable to that offered in Little Rock, Tulsa or Oklahoma City, Weber said, and is available right here at home.

To schedule a mammogram or for more information, call (918) 774-1100 and ask for the October Cash Special Mammography.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a yearly campaign that is intended to educate people about the importance of early screening, testing and more.

Remember, early detection can save your life!
