Digital Mammography

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women ages 15 to 54, and it is the most common form of cancer in women - regardless of age or ethnicity. A mammogram can detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year.

The Medical Center at Franklin offers digital mammography, the most modern mammography equipment available today. Call The Medical Center at Franklin at (270) 598-4899 to schedule your mammogram.
