Stay in control of your health and schedule your mammogram today.
Mammograms are the single most effective tool in the early detection of breast cancer and are proven to save lives.
With early detection, the five-year survival rate is nearly 100%. Early detection enables the doctors to implement a treatment plan before symptoms begin, resulting in a better outcome.
Talk to your primary care provider if you have a family history or other high-risk factors for breast cancer.
Screening guidelines according to the American Cancer Society:
Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (x-rays of the breast) if they wish to do so.
Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.
Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.
If you are in your 30s and starting to think about a screening mammogram,
consult with your provider about the age and frequency that is best for your mammograms.
Breast cancer deaths have been declining since 1990 thanks to early detection, better screening, increased awareness and new treatment options.
As a result, women who are regularly screened for breast cancer have a 47% lower risk of dying from the disease compared to those who don't.
