The mammography cart is at Largo do Rosário, in Mogi das Cruzes, until next Friday

The services provided by the Mammography Cart, belonging to the “Mulheres de Peito” State Program, will be carried out in Mogi das Cruzes until next Friday (20). Services are provided in the mobile unit installed in Largo do Rosário, in the central area of ​​the city.

The procedure is performed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a capacity of up to 50 patients. Women between the ages of 50 and 69 can have a mammogram without having to make an appointment or see a doctor. You just need to provide your personal document and your SUS card.

Women between the ages of 35 and 49 and over 70 can also benefit from the service, on the condition of presenting the medical application for examination, the identity card and the SUS card.

The “Mulheres de Peito” mammography trolley aims to facilitate women’s access to mammography in the most affected age group and to promote the early diagnosis of breast cancer. The patient leaves the scanner with photos in hand, along with a username and password to access the report. For variable results, the same program team will contact the patient for necessary referrals.

According to the municipal administration, the municipality also has options for mammograms and other diagnostic or complementary tests that must be ordered by the attending physician. If in doubt, the patient can consult the nurse in the unit closest to her home and obtain advice on the examination or consultation, if necessary.
