Matt Budig, director of radiology at Newman Memorial, said even if they cannot get someone in for an appointment in October, as long as that person calls in October, they will still get the special rate.
"We try to encourage our patients to use 3 tools to aid them in early detection of breast cancer: a clinical breast exam, a self breast exam, and a mammography," Budig
Using all 3 tools gives women a better chance of detecting breast cancer early, he
said. However, even with clinical breast exams and self breast exams sometimes a lump can go overlooked.
The mammogram is able to detect lumps that are much smaller and often overlooked, he
