St. Mary's in Troy offering free mammography screenings

Posted:
TROY, N.Y. - St. Mary's Hospital in Troy is offering free mammography screenings for women over 40 who do not have health insurance. 

The event will feature free mammograms, clinical breast exams along with other health services.

It's happening Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Seton Massry Center on Hoosick Street.

A new study out of Norway has highlighted just how important mammogram services can be for women. The study says mammograms can reduce the chances of dying from breast cancer by nearly 30-percent and that national screening programs should continue.

The study is the latest to consider whether the dangers of mammograms outweigh the benefits.

The research was published online in the British Journal, BMJ.
