Breast Cancer Prevention Program: from 9 to 28 February 2018 (12/01/2018)

The Murcian Health Service, with the collaboration of the City of Alhama de Murcia, reports one more year of the breast cancer prevention program.

A letter will be cited to 1,768 women, between 50 and 69 years old, to be tested between 9 and 28 February 2018.

To perform these mammograms, a mobile unit will be moved to the municipality of Alhama de Murcia, which will be located next to the local Health Center.

Important note: any woman of the above mentioned age range who has not received a mammogram for two years and does not receive a citation letter before February 9, should contact her Health Center or doctor's office to make an appointment.

This prevention program dates back to 1995, when the Directorate General of Public Health and Addictions of the Ministry of Health, in collaboration with the Spanish Association Against Cancer, the City of Alhama de Murcia and the Health Center, decided to start it in our municipality.

Since then, early detection is done by mammography every two years to women between 50 and 69 years.

Its primary objectives are to reduce mortality from this disease and increase the quality of life of those who suffer from it.
