Remember To get a regular mammogram

Statistics show that one in eight women will get breast cancer in their  lifetime. That’s why regular mammograms are important — to detect cancer early, when it is most treatable.


A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast that is used as a preventive screening to detect cancer
early. In fact, mammograms can find cancers in early stages — nearly one to three years before you could actually feel a lump in your breast — which greatly improves a woman’s chance for successful treatment.

Why it is important to regularly get a mammogram:

  • The American Cancer Society recommends that women, age 40 and older, should get an annual mammogram.
  • Studies have shown that the only screening method for breast cancer that saves lives is a Mammography
  • Regular mammograms give radiologists a baseline for comparison, which helps doctors to find changes in breast tissue and that way cancers are detected earlier.
