Early Detection Matters
One in eight will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
Mammograms play a key role in early breast cancer detection. A mammogram can be used either for screening in women who have no unusual signs or symptoms or for diagnostic purposes for women who have suspicious breast changes.
All women should get a baseline mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40. After age 40, mammograms should be repeated annually. Pre-menopausal women with a strong family history of breast cancer, meaning a first-degree relative, should get screened 10 years before their loved one’s age of diagnosis.
How Does it Work?
During a mammogram, your breasts are compressed between two firm surfaces in order to spread out the breast tissue. A radiologist will interpret your images and send a report of the findings to your doctor.
