Make Your Health a Priority: Schedule Your Mammogram

mammogramWhen breast cancer is detected early, your chances for survival are 95 percent or more. So we’re going to do everything we can to remind you, to convince you, to urge you to do regular breast self-exams and get your mammograms.

  • One out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • Every two minutes, there is a new breast cancer diagnosis.
  • The majority of women diagnosed have no family history.

The vast majority of breast cancer survivors are the ones who caught the cancer early. And every single patient who caught it early did so through some kind of screening. A mammogram. Or breast self-exam.

Mammography is the primary imaging tool used to detect breast cancer that cannot be felt during regular breast examinations. Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.

Early detection save lives.
