The simple fact is that there’s no better way to detect breast cancer earlier than with a mammogram.
“I’m scared.” There’s really nothing to be afraid of. There’s really no pain involved with a mammogram. There may, and we emphasize may be some discomfort for a short time. That’s it.
“I don’t have time.” Do you have time for a cup of coffee at the coffee shop? Do you have 20 minutes to talk with a girlfriend? Then you must have 20 minutes for a very important exam that can save lives. In fact, at Reno Diagnostic Centers, we’ve even extended our hours to accommodate busy schedules.
“Breast cancer doesn’t run in my family.” Actually, nearly 30% of breast cancer patients have no history of breast cancer in their family, nor are they particularly high risk.
“I don’t have the money” Most insurances cover mammograms at 100% even if you have a high deductible plan. And if you don’t have insurance, Reno Diagnostic Centers provides special pricing for self-pay.
