Breast Cancer.

Early detection saves lives.

Breast cancer is one of the most common causes of death for women in the United States. Leading risk factors including advanced age and family history may increase the likelihood of its occurrence. Each year, around 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed.

If you are a woman over 40 years old, you should get screening mammograms every year.  Breast cancer can occur at any age, but it is more likely to occur after age 40. The earlier the diagnosis, the better your chance for survival.
