Wyoming Health Department Urges More Mammograms

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming is among the lowest states in the country in terms of the number of women who get mammograms as recommended.

The Wyoming Department of Health says October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Carol Peterson with the health department says the screening rate for Wyoming women over age 40 last year was just over 67 percent, putting Wyoming 48th nationwide. The median rate nationwide was over 75 percent.

The Wyoming Comprehensive Cancer Consortium says all women should consider having mammograms every one to two years beginning at age 40.
