Rethink P.I.N.K - Mammogram Awareness

***Disclosure-Compensated Post.  All opinions stated are my own based on my own experiences.
Did you know tomorrow, Oct 16 is National Mammography Day?
  • The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every year and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. Other organizations cite every other year as the optimal time to get checked.  
In 2013, I had a scare when I went in for my mammogram results and I was only 35.  In case you missed it, read more about it here-My Mammogram Results.  Are you 40 years old?  Have you self tested yourself?  Have you had your mammogram this year?     

Solis Mammography wants to help by encouraging you to talk to your doctor, explain your unique health history, and help make the choice that’s right for you.  When you are ready, Solis is here to offer an exceptional experience – eliminating stress and anxiety in every way possible.

What:  Solis wants women to know that most women – 7 out of 8 – will not get breast cancer, and that their annual mammogram is a way to focus on empowerment, choice and peace of mind.

As the nation’s largest independent provider of screening and diagnostics for breast health services, Solis wants women to Rethink P.I.N.K. this October and focus on breast health.  

Rethink “P.I.N.K.”:

    • P=Peace of Mind.  Solis Mammography has trademarked the Peace of Mind Mammogram™ to reflect their promise of offering such an exceptional experience that women  won’t avoid getting the mammogram they need.  The environment of each center and exceptional quality of patient care offered by specialists in breast imaging leads to peace of mind for the patients they serve.

    • I=Incredible Service.  Solis Mammography’s entire team is deeply committed to the women and physicians they serve.  From online scheduling and fast results delivered by secure email within 24 to 48 hours, the company is proud to cite that 98 percent of their patients would give them a positive recommendation to family or friends.

    • N=Not what you Expect.  While many women associate mammograms with pain, Solis’ breast dedicated technologists are highly trained in breast compression and placement.  This results in 89 percent of their patients reporting little to no discomfort during their exam.

    • K=Knowledge is Power.  Rethink the common statistic most women cite – that 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.  Solis encourages women to remember that this also means 7 in 8 women will NOT get breast cancer.  But if you are the 1 in 8, you want to find any anomaly as EARLY as possible, so that your treatment is as EASY as possible.

When:  The Entire Month of October including Oct. 16 which is National Mammography Day . 

***Note – Many Solis centers are offering extended weekday and Saturday hours during the month of October.  

Where:  There are 4 centers across Houston. Visit their website to find the most convenient center:
