National Mammography Day: Where to get examined at low-cost in the Houston area


HOUSTON – The third Friday in October marks National Mammogram Day.

In 2019, more than 200,000 women and 2,000 men in the U.S. are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer, according to Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Warning signs are not the same for everyone, and no one is exempt from the illness. A mammogram is defined as a type of breast imaging that uses low-dose X-rays to detect cancer early.
