Breast Cancer Early Detection Program
White Memorial Medical Center is offering no-cost breast cancer screenings through the Cecilia Gonzalez De La Hoya Cancer Center.
The Breast Cancer Early Detection Program is open to women who:
- are over 40 years
- have a low income
- have no health plan coverage or Medi-Cal, or who have health plan coverage but cannot use it because it is too expensive
How the Program Works
Yearly breast exams will be given to women 40 years old and over. A clinical breast exam will be done by a nurse practitioner. Then, women will be sent for a mammogram. If a breast abnormality is found, additional tests will be ordered. All breast services will be covered in this program.
To participate in the program, an application must be filled out. All information is private and proof of income or citizenship is not required. Services are free for women who qualify.
To schedule a breast exam, call 323-307-8523 to make an appointment. Please make an appointment soon. Do it for yourself. Do it for those who love you. Just do it!
