Breast health

Iredell Health System operates a self-requested digital and 3D mammography program at our Women's Health Center, which means patients who meet the American Cancer Society's recommendations do not have to have a prescription for screening. Call 704.878.4551 to make an appointment.

Mobile mammography

Mobile 2D and 3D mammography services are available at the Iredell Physician Network offices at Taylorsille, 1668 NC Hwy 16 South. Call 704.878.7350 to schedule an appointment.

Also located at the center is bone density screening.

You will receive two bills for a standard screening mammogram—one from Iredell Health System and another from the radiologist. Please call the Women's Health Center for current prices.

The American Cancer Society recommends:

For women under age 40

  • A screening mammogram by age 40.
  • Monthly breast self-exams.
  • Exam by physician every three years.

For women ages 40 and beyond

  • Mammograms every year.
  • Monthly breast self-exams.
  • Yearly physician exams.

Women who notice any changes in their breasts should see a physician right away.
