Mammography Cart carries out free exams in Presidente Prudente
The Mammography Cart of the Government of the state of São Paulo will remain in Presidente Prudente (SP) until February 16, in the parking lot of the Hospital Regional do Câncer de Presidente Prudente (HRCPP) to carry out preventive examinations of breast cancer in women who have passed by the Municipal Health Network and are already requesting an examination performed by the doctor.

Women between the ages of 35 and 49 and 11 months years old: must be with medical request and personal document with photo;

The mobile mammography units have a multidisciplinary team composed of radiology technicians, nursing professionals, administrative staff and an ultrasonographer”, says the State Government of São Paulo.
