Free and low cost mammogram screening events happening in Tennessee!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how important screening and early detection are. As a survivor myself, early detection through a self breast exam is what saved my life. I am still a firm believer in self breast exams, as they help women become aware of how their breasts normally look and feel, making them able to quickly report any changes to their doctor. To give yourself an examination, check out these instructions The National Breast Cancer Foundation provides. 

1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. This is why I highly encourage all women 40 and above (35 if you have genetic mutations or a family history of cancer) to get regular mammograms. Remember, not getting your mammogram will NOT change the outcome. Listed below are events and facilities to help you get your mammogram scheduled this month.

  • For women in Wilson County, Premier Radiology Lebanon is hosting a new take on mammograms with a fun Sip & Screen event on October 24th, 2023. Scan the QR code on the graphic below or click here for details. You MUST register to secure your spot.
