Manitobas mobile breast screening clinic will be in Flin Flon August 11th to 23rd at the Primary Health Care Center. Their Health Educator Larissa Sawchuk says this clinic is important to women because breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and in Manitoba about 900 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 200 women will die from this disease every year, so it’s important to get checked early and know if you’re at high risk. She says screening is just a quick process where you’ll go into their mobile vehicle for an x-ray with a female technologist in a private room.
