Mobile mammogram van stops in Youngstown

Free mammography clinic

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A mobile breast cancer center made a stop Monday at the Midlothian Free Clinic in Youngstown, offering mammograms and pap smears.

It was specifically geared toward women between the ages of 40 to 65 with no insurance or low income. The Trinity Breast and Cervical Cancer grant program put on the clinic.

It was the fifth mobile clinic at the Youngstown facility. Organizers said with breast cancer, it is all about early detection.

“The breast cancer rate is going up, but it is going up because we have early detection,” Barb Steitz, Trinity Breast and Cervical Cancer grant program coordinator, said.

She said turnout for Monday’s program was good, and the patients will get their results in one to two weeks.
