Free mammograms in Puerto Vallata during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Jalisco Health Secretariat (SSJ) will intensify actions with the purpose of timely detection through the diagnosis of breast cancer in women aged 40 to 69 years through digital mammography.

The Digital Mobile Mastography Unit will be in Puerto Vallarta providing free service to women in the region, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the following places:

– October 8 – Ixtapa II Health Center
– October 9 – Las Juntas Health Center
-10 October- Remance Health Center
-11 October- El Pitillal Health Center

-15 to October 19 – Grupo Acir Radio Station – Francisco Villa Avenue No. 198, Col. Las Gaviotas.
-5 to November 7 – CPS Radio Radio- Francisco Medina Asencio Boulevard, Marina Vallarta.

The free services will be carried out only to people AFFILIATED WITH SEGURO POPULAR.

For people who are not affiliated with the Seguro Popular system and require a mammogram, free services will be available only at the Grupo Acir and CPS Radio locations, the requirements that are needed are:

CURP
Proof of address
Official identification (INE, passport, license)

Women should go without deodorant, or lotion under the arms or on the breast on the day of the exam.

The detection of breast cancer should include: self-examination, clinical examination, and mammography.

Self-exam is recommended for all women over 20 years; which aims to sensitize women about breast cancer, have a better understanding of their own body and identify abnormal changes to the demand for appropriate medical attention.

The clinical examination should be performed annually, starting at age 25, by health personnel trained in breast examination.

Mammograms are recommended in apparently healthy women between 40 and 69 years old, every two years.

In Mexico since 2006, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women.
