Mammograms save lives

When breast tumors are small and most treatable, people rarely have symptoms. That’s why early detection through a mammogram is still the best way to fight the disease. Thousands of lives are saved through this simple preventive test. The next one could be yours.

Better screening with 3D mammography

Studies show 3D mammography reduces the number of patients called back for additional imaging tests. And, it finds cancer earlier than standard mammography alone. Call your preferred location or use MyChart (select locations) to schedule. 3D screening is covered by Medicare and a growing list of insurance providers.

Screening guidelines

If you're at average risk, start monthly self-exams at age 20 and yearly mammograms at age 40.

Signs of breast cancer

It’s important to be familiar with how your breasts look and feel so you can alert your healthcare provider if you notice lumps or other changes. Monthly self-exams combined with yearly mammograms can help detect breast cancer before signs and symptoms appear.

Self-exam steps

A breast cancer diagnosis

Chances are your mammogram will reveal no problems. If an abnormality is detected, our team of specialists will work with you and your local healthcare provider to provide immediate care.

Next steps

Insurance and transportation

If you don't have insurance or your insurance does not cover a mammogram, there are programs to help you get a free mammogram. You may also qualify for rides to and from your appointment if you have Medicaid.

Need a second opinion?

When it comes to breast cancer, it’s not worth taking any chances. Get a second opinion for peace of mind. You don’t have to be a Gundersen patient. We’ll work with your provider to get access to your medical records and the results of tests you may have already had. Appointments can often be arranged in 1-3 business days.
