Mobile Breast Cancer Screening Unit coming to Northern BC this September

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Throughout the month of September, B.C. Cancer’s Mobile Breast Cancer Unit will be making stops across Northern B.C., including the Peace Region.

According to B.C. Cancer, the mobile unit vehicles provide state-of-the-art digital screening mammograms, are wheelchair-accessible, and feature a spacious waiting area and comfortable private examination room.

B.C. Cancer says about 10 percent of all screening mammograms performed in B.C. are done on the mobile units.

To ensure the safety of patients and health care providers, as part of COVID-19 precautions, the mobile unit is currently operating a modified schedule that limits the amount of travel between communities.

Some of the stops in Northern B.C. include Chetwynd, Hudson’s Hope, and Fort Nelson.
