With the latest tools including Breast MRI – a more effective screening for those at a higher risk of breast cancer – Baptist Hospital-North Mississippi provides easy, close-to-home options for testing all in one place.

October is breast cancer awareness month, and while we frequently hear talk that early detection is the key to breast cancer survival, just one person putting off a check-up is too many.

By the time someone self-detects breast cancer, it is often more developed than it would have been if detected earlier by medical technology, which can pick it up long before a person can feel it.

So don’t delay.

Reach out to your local physician for a referral or contact Baptist Hospital-North Mississippi for information on screening options.

Early detection may save your life or the life of a loved one.
