Free clinical breast exams

ANDERSON — Community Hospital Anderson offers free clinical breast exams by appointment for women in Madison County.

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.
