*1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, but mammograms can find cancer early, when it is most treatable. That’s why LifeBridge Health is having its 3rd Annual Mammothon on November 1.

The Mammothon may save you, or your mother, sister, daughter or best friend. It offers extended hours at LifeBridge Health breast care centers and select Advanced Radiology locations so all of the important women in your life can take action against breast cancer by taking the first step – getting a mammogram.*breastcancer.org

Screening recommendations:

**Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (x-rays of the breast) if they wish to do so.
**Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
**Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.
**Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.

Frequently Asked Questions  
  •  

    Who should get a mammogram?
    If you are a woman 40 years of age or older and it has been over a year since your last screening mammogram, or you have never had a mammogram, you should be screened for breast cancer

    Do I need an appointment?
    It is suggested that you set up an appointment to ensure that you are able to be in-and-out with very little wait time. When scheduling the appointment, a representative will also verify that your insurance is accepted and that you have a referral/order from a physician, if necessary. To make an appointment at any of the LifeBridge Health Breast Care Centers, call 410-601-WELL (9355).     
  • Do I need an order or referral from my physician?
    You will need a referral if you plan to have your mammogram done at The Herman & Walter Samuelson Breast Care Centers at Northwest Hospital and Quarry Lake. You do not need a referral to get a mammogram at the Center for Breast Health at Carroll Hospital.

  • What if I don’t have a physician to provide a referral?
    Call 410-601-WELL and a customer service representative will help you locate a physician for a referral.

  • Does it matter if this is not my usual screening location?
    No. Choose the LifeBridge Health location that is most convenient for you.

  • Will my insurance be accepted?
    LifeBridge Health participates in a wide range of health plans and accepts most major insurances. When making an appointment, a representative will verify that your plan is accepted. If you do not have health insurance, LifeBridge Health has a special program called Freedom to Screen, which can help you receive free mammograms, clinical breast exams and educational resources, if eligble. For more information, call 410-601-WELL

    Do I need to do anything special to prepare for a mammogram?
    You do not need to do anything special to prepare for a mammogram. However, avoid using deodorants, antiperspirants, powders, lotions, creams or perfumes under your arms or on your breasts. Metallic particles in powders and deodorants could be visible on your mammogram and cause confusion.

  • What if I have received a diagnosis and want a second opinion?
    The Herman & Walter Samuelson Breast Care Centers at Quarry Lake and Northwest Hospital, and the Center for Breast Health at Carroll Hospital have radiologists who specialize in breast imaging for more accurate reading as well as the most advanced technologies in the Baltimore area for the evaluation of breast disease.
