Finding breast cancer early can help save lives. With today’s busy schedules, Lourdes makes it quick and convenient for women to get the screenings they need. The Lourdes “Mammo on the Move” Mobile Mammography Van will provide digital screening mammograms and education at Tioga Opportunities, Inc. Family Health Clinic, 110 Central Ave., Owego on Thursday, February 29th from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
You are eligible to use the van for breast screening if you are age 40 or older, have no current breast problems or symptoms, have no history of breast surgery, or had a biopsy over one year ago with benign results and no further problems.
You do not have to be a patient of Lourdes and your results can be sent to the health care provider of your choice. Insured and uninsured women are welcome. No referral is needed. Appointments may be made by calling 607-798-5723. To find out if you are eligible for low- or no-cost screenings, call the Cancer Services program at 607-778-3900.

We offer a sliding scale fee dependent on income and household size. Same-day appointments are often available.
