BATON ROUGE - Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Stephens discussed options today for women who are diagnosed with breast cancer, including different types of reconstruction surgeries.

He said if you're over 50 and haven't gotten a mammogram yet, now is the time. Mary Bird Perkins offers free mammograms in their mobile units.

All you have to do is call 225-215-1234 to make an appointment.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Dr. Stephens will continue answering questions about breast cancer on Thursdays throughout the month.
