THE PEABODY ADVOCATE - Friday, August 4, 2017
THE ADVOCATE HOROSCOPE VA & MAMMOGRAMS The VA Women Veterans Health Program has adopted guidelines published by the American Cancer Society regarding mammograms. The guidelines apply to women at average risk for breast cancer and in adopting the guidelines the VA will now give women Veterans the choice to receive breast cancer screenings starting at age 40. In addition to adopting this recommended guideline the VA has established a breast cancer registry to provide patient-specific information about breast cancer screening, treatment and test results. At present 76% of women Veterans ages 40 to 49 who are enrolled in the VA health care system receive mammograms through the VA. Adopting this guideline is a further step by the VA in improving health care for women Veterans who comprise an ever growing part of the military. Be sure to discuss this adopted guideline with your physician. Thank you for your service.
