Sep 28, 2021 Breast Cancer Awareness Month: The Importance of Getting a Mammogram

Lori L. Schleicher, MD, Chief of Gastrointestinal Oncology at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center explains why early detection is so important especially when it comes to breast cancer.

Early detection of breast cancer can save your life. Even if you don’t feel a lump, swelling or tenderness, you still need a mammogram. In fact, experts recommend that all women receive their first mammogram at age 40 and continue to get screening mammograms once every year after that.

Newark Beth Israel Medical Center together with the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (RCINJ), the state’s only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, we offer 3D Mammograms, Breast MRI, genetic testing, access to clinical trials and peace of mind.

Schedule your mammogram today.
