I believe in mammograms. And you?

PQDCS

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. In Quebec, it is estimated that one woman out of nine will develop this disease. Early screening, and mammography in particular, is recognized as the best weapon against cancer.  This is why we need to keep women informed about screening and to facilitate access to mammograms.

Since 1998, the Québec Breast Cancer Screening Program (PQDCS) has allowed women aged 50 to 69 to have a free screening mammogram every two years.

Today, the PQDCS regional team in Montreal is pleased to reveal its new promotional page on breast cancer screening. This page is not only for all Montreal women and but for health professionals too, as it has lots of content to help everyone learn more about screening mammograms and the Québec Breast Cancer Screening Program. Translated into seven languages, the content was designed to reach as many people as possible while providing practical, concrete information. There is also a video explaining how to take part in the program, a search engine to help you find a clinic near you to schedule a mammogram, and much more. Health professionals will have access to a virtual tool kit containing everything they need to promote screening mammograms.
