Easy Steps to Breast Health

Screening Recommendations

Mammograms and other breast imaging tests are often used to screen women for cancer. The American College of Radiology recommends annual mammograms for women aged 40 and older. Your health plan may cover an annual mammogram.

If you are uninsured or concerned about your ability to pay, CMH partners can help:

Both provide free screening mammograms to qualified applicants. Contact your local health department or complete the BCFO online application.

Types of Mammograms

Screening Mammogram

A screening mammogram is performed when a patient has no breast complaints or symptoms. A patient or health care provider can schedule a screening mammogram. Patients making their own screening appointments must designate a health care provider to receive the report.

Log in to the CMH Patient Portal and click on "Schedule an Appointment" or call 417-328-7860 for screening mammogram appointments.

Diagnostic Breast Evaluation

A diagnostic breast evaluation evaluates all breast complaints, problems or symptoms. For an appointment with Dr. Horner, patients must contact their health care provider and obtain a referral.

Dr. Horner will be responsible for ordering the appropriate exam based upon the current American College of Radiology stands. She will meet with all breast evaluation patients to discuss results.

Breast Clinical Exams

A doctor or nurse should perform a physical breast exam every three years for women in their 20s or 30s. Annual clinical exams should become routine at age 40.

Breast Self-Awareness

Monthly self-breast exams are an option for women in their 20s and should be routine for women after age 30. Only by knowing what feels "normal" for themselves are women able to promptly report any breast changes to their physician.

Schedule a Mammogram Appointment

A screening mammogram is performed when a patient has no breast complaints or symptoms. You may schedule an appointment for a screening mammogram directly with the CMH Breast Care Center without a physician referral.

Online: Log in to the CMH Patient Portal to schedule an appointment for a screening mammogram. You may schedule your appointment online if:

  • Your last mammogram was done at CMH.
  • You do not have any current symptoms (discharge, lump or new pain).
  • You have not had a lumpectomy or been diagnosed with breast cancer within the past two years.
  • You have seen your primary care physician within the past 24 months.
  • You do not have an augmentation.

If you do not meet these guidelines, you may request an appointment for a screening mammogram through the patient portal. A mammogram scheduling specialist will call you to schedule your appointment.
