When it comes to cancer, an advance screening could save your life. Women's and Children's Hospital in Lafayette holds genetics clinics twice a month. The goal is to provide screenings for those with a genetic predisposition to breast cancer.
Doctors can monitor patients closely who may be at a greater risk. But even with all of the information and research that is available, so much is still unknown about the disease and that's why screenings are so important.
The clinics take place every other Thursday. If you are interested, contact the Women's and Children's Hospital, Women's Multi Specialty Group.
