OSF Mammography Services Downtown Peoria

WMBD This Morning

Take Advantage of OSF Saint Francis Medical Center’s newly expanded Mammography Services downtown! 

Vicki Shanklin, Operations Manager – OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center – Centers for Breast Health explains the details.

Women over 40 should talk with their health care provider on when the best time is to begin annual mammograms.

If there is a strong family history of breast cancer, a mammogram may be ordered at an earlier age.

Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) as part of a periodic (regular) health exam by their health care provider, preferably every three years.

Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.

Women should report any breast changes to their health professional right away.
