ASHLAND, Ky. – The best way to detect breast cancer early is to get screened. In fact, when breast cancer is found early and confined to the breast, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent, according to the American Cancer Society. Because it is so important to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, King’s Daughters Medical Center no longer requires a physician order for screening mammography.
KDMC’s Mobile Mammography Unit will visit many Kentucky and Ohio communities in June.
