Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Hispanic American women and the leading cause of cancer death among them.

Breast cancer is diagnosed about 30 percent less often among women of Hispanic origin, but it is more often diagnosed at a later stage, when the disease is more advanced. Hispanic American women also get fewer screening tests like mammograms than other women, which means their cancer goes undetected for longer.

To schedule a mammogram, call (401) 274-1122, ext. 41248. Women & Infants offers mammography services at the main hospital and at its medical office buildings.
