BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

St. Vincent's Health System is offering $99 mammograms in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

St. Vincent's hopes the reduced price will encourage and enable more women to be screened for breast cancer. Studies show that small tumors can be detected by mammograms up to three years before they can be felt by a woman or her doctor.

Women should call their local St. Vincent's facility to schedule a mammogram:

East 205.838.3134
