The services provided by the mammography trolley, belonging to the state program “Mulheres de Peito”, 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, from 8 am to 5 pm, 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 order a doctor. All you need to do is provide your personal document and SUS card.

Women aged 35-49 and over 70 can also undergo the service, as long as they submit the medical application for examination, ID card and SUS card.

The Mammography Trolley “Mulheres de Peito” aims to facilitate women’s access to mammography in the age group with the highest incidence, and to promote early diagnosis of breast cancer. The patient leaves the scan with pictures in his hand, as well as 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. When in doubt, the patient can consult the nurse at the unit closest to her home and get guidance on the examination or consultation, as needed.
