SouthCoast Health experts urge regularly scheduled mammograms during pandemic

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

mammograms savannah breast cancer doctors

Dr. Christa Jillard with SouthCoast Health’s High Risk Breast Cancer Clinic says she’s seen a drop in the number of mammograms since the pandemic began.

Dr Jillard says if you have any concerns or questions, you can definitely set up a telehealth appointment ahead of your screening to discuss them. She explained why mammograms are so important.

“The whole point of screening mammograms is specifically the fact that patients do not have symptoms. Period. And so we know that though years and years of research and patients who have come before other patients and have allowed us to do clinical trials that if we catch cancer at an earlier stage, the outcomes are just that much better, and so people die of breast cancer, and the great thing about the technological advancements is we find these things way before oftentimes women have symptoms. And so I really encourage every woman to continue being proactive about her health.”

Dr Jillard says its generally advised that women begin getting regular mammograms at age 40. That can differ if there is a family history of breast cancer.
