Did you know: Breast Cancer affects 1 out of 8 women in the US?

Last year, Louisiana had the second highest death rate of breast cancer in the U.S.

At University Medical Center New Orleans we’re out to change that statistic, one extraordinary woman at a time.

Schedule a same- or next-day mammogram appointment. No need for a doctor’s order if you’re over 40 and have no known conditions. Call 504.702.5700 to schedule.

When it comes to your breast health, University Medical Center New Orleans wants the best for you. If you have risk factors for breast cancer such as having dense breast tissue or a family history of this disease, a mammogram is essential because it can find cancer at an early stage when treatment is more effective.

If you haven’t had a mammogram in a while or never had one at all, this screening is essential because it can find cancer at an early stage when treatment is more effective.
