Do I need a mammogram?
Annual screening mammograms are advised for women 50 years of age and older, and every other year from ages 40 to 49. These are usually ordered in conjunction with a well woman exam. However, if you are not able to schedule your well woman exam in a timely manner, you may self-refer and contact RAF Lakenheath Radiology at 226-8407 or 01638 52 8407 to schedule a mammogram.

Do I need a Pap Smear?
Generally, all women should begin cervical cancer screening about three years after they begin having vaginal intercourse, but no later than 21 years old. Guidelines for the frequency of this test vary as women get older and number of normal or abnormal pap results. Guidelines may also vary for women who have had a hysterectomy. Please see your provider to find out more on your specific situation and a recommended schedule for testing.

How do I schedule a well woman exam?
Please call the clinic appointment line at 01480 844 503 to schedule your well woman exam.

Can I bring my child to my women's health appointment?
For safety reasons, please make arrangements for your child while you are being seen. If you come in with any children, your appointment will be rescheduled for a later date.
