Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital will host a night dedicated to good breast health June 28 from 5:30 - 7 p.m. in the hospital's Ambulatory Surgery unit.
Women over the age of 20, that have not had a clinical breast exam within the last 12 months, are invited to attend the free screenings. All participants will receive clinical breast exams, and mammogram assistance will also be available to those in need. Men are also welcome to receive a clinical breast exam.
Breast cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among women in the U.S. If found early, however, cure rates are very high. Screening and early detection are critical in helping achieve the best outcome possible.
The clinical breast exams will be administered by a number of board certified doctors: Paul Baron, MD; Chris Hawk, MD; Bo Blessing, MD; and Henry West, MD.
The screenings are supported in part by the Lowcountry affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Registration is required for the clinical breast exams. Call (843) 402-CARE (2273) to schedule an appointment for the screening.
