Peninsula Regional Offers Free Clinical Breast Exams in May 2013
The Breast Center at Peninsula Regional’s Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute is offering one of the best gifts any woman will receive for Mother’s Day: the opportunity for a free clinical breast exam.

Early detection is the best way to make sure that women with breast cancer have the best possible treatment options and outlook. According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancers found during screening exams are more likely to be smaller and still confined to the breast — important factors in predicting the prognosis of a woman with this disease.

So bring your mother, sister or best friend and join them for a clinical breast exam and education to perform self-breast exams. Speak to clinicians about your questions or concerns and have them answered, woman to woman.

There are two opportunities for the free exams: Thursday, May 9 and Thursday, May 16, from 3-6 p.m. each day. Screenings will be held at the Breast Center at Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. To register for a free clinical breast exam, call 410-543-7006.
