Since October is â€śBreast Cancer Awareness Month,â€ť many area women are reminded to make an appointment for their annual mammogram at Kane Community Hospital (KCH).
â€śMammograms can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease,â€ť said Julie Laughner, the lead mammography technologist at the local hospital. â€śThis type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. Screening mammograms usually involve two X-ray picturesâ€”or imagesâ€”of each breast. The X-ray images make it possible to detect tumors that cannot be felt.â€ť
