Your Best Defense Against Breast Cancer
A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breast. Mammograms can be used for screening or diagnostic purposes. Early detection of breast cancer often leads to better survival rates. Mammograms have been shown to reduce the chances of dying from breast cancer.
Woman’s encourages women over the age of 40 to receive a screening mammogram every year even if she has no signs or symptoms. Your doctor may recommend you have a mammogram before the age of 40 or order more frequent screenings if you are at a higher risk of breast cancer.
