Free clinical breast exams offered

ANDERSON — Community Hospital Anderson offers free clinical breast exams once a month for women in Madison County. Jill Hensley and Pam Davis, nurse navigators at Community Anderson will perform the next exams on Friday, March 21, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Women’s Center at the hospital.

Clinical breast exams are different than mammograms, and should be done every three years in women ages 20-39, and every year for women over 40. All women over the age of 20 should perform self-breast exams monthly. Women over the age of 40 should have a screening mammogram done once a year.

If abnormality is detected, the patient will be referred to her physician. The women without a physician will be referred to health care providers who are accepting new patients.

Register by calling 298-1617.
