During the month of October Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center is offering a bag of goodies and a chance to win in a weekly drawing.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Package drawing will be held every Friday in October.

Come to EOMC during the month of October for a Mammogram, and get a bag full of goodies.

“Come and see the BEST Mammo unit in the River Valley (along with the best technicians) and experience the EOMC Difference!”


The American Cancer Society recommends these screening guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer in most adults:

Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
Clinical breast exam (CBE) about every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over.
Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care provider. Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.
Some women – because of their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors – should be screened with MRI in addition to mammograms. (The number of women who fall into this category is small: less than 2% of all the women in the US.) Talk with your doctor about your history and whether you should have additional tests earlier and at more frequent intervals.
