SOMC offering breast cancer screenings

Southern Ohio Medical Center will be offering free breast cancer screenings at the SOMC Breast Center. The first screening will take place on May 1 from 1pm to 4pm, while additional screenings will be from 9am to noon on June 12 and July 3.

Free clinical breast exams will be provided at the screening. Free mammograms will also be provided for women who are uninsured or underinsured through the Hands of Hope program. The screenings conducted at the SOMC Breast Center will offer same-day mammography if needed.

Individuals 40 years of age or older can register for the screening by calling the SOMC Volunteer Office at 740-356-8234. Younger individuals can also register if they have a family history of breast cancer or an abnormal finding on a self-breast exam.
