Know Your Numbers

Knowing your risk for certain conditions before they occur can make all the difference in helping to prevent them. Getting regular screenings helps you do this by revealing to you and your doctor what is happening in your body. If we find that you are at risk for diseases like breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis or others, Mission Hospital physicians will provide essential preventive guidance and medicine.
