One out of every eight women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis at some point during their lifetime. Breast Cancer is the second most common cancer for women after skin cancer.   It is the number 2 cause of deaths from cancer after lung cancer.  Detecting the disease early is crucial for increasing survival rates.

Being female and aging are the most prominent risk factors for breast cancer. Surprisingly, over 75% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history or high-risk factors associated with the disease. Hence, regular screening is essential, even if you don’t possess these risk factors.

University Hospital along with Rutgers New Jersey Medical School has established a mobile mammography program, Mammography in Motion, bringing advanced diagnostic technology to our community.  Our primary objective is to ensure that all women aged 40 and above receive annual screening mammograms. Our aim is to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages when it is most treatable.
