BREAST HEALTH CLINIC
As part of the Québec Breast Cancer Screening Program (PQDCS), the CSSS de la Montagne offers support and accompaniment for women aged 50 to 69 in the territory.
Our nurses in the Breast Health Clinic perform evaluations and screening activities, and they guide women to designated screening centres (CDD) for mammograms.
They also inform patients about the screening results and coordinate follow-up appointments when additional exams are necessary. Our nurses give information and support to patients awaiting diagnosis.

WHAT IS THE QUEBEC BREAST CANCER SCREENING PROGRAM?
If you are between 50 and 69 years of age, you will automatically receive a letter from the Direction of Public Health encouraging you to have a mammogram (breast X-ray) at a designated screening centre. The letter serves as a medical prescription for a mammogram. You need to present the letter when you go for your appointment.
You will be asked to fill out a consent form at your appointment. You will then be registered in the Québec Breast Cancer Screening Program, which will remind you to have a mammogram every two years.
If you are under 50 years of age and wish to have a mammogram, you need an exam authorization from your doctor.
