Maintaining your breast health is one of the most important gifts you can give yourself. You and your doctor may have already discussed your family cancer history and what you need to do to assure your risk of breast cancer is as low as possible. Your doctor will likely suggest certain breast screenings at certain times and at some point recommend that you get annual screening mammograms, usually starting at age 40. If there are any concerns, your doctor may discuss other tests such as ultrasounds or biopsies.
We're here to make sure keeping your breasts healthy is easy.
An annual screening mammogram is an invaluable tool for detecting and treating cancer at its earliest stages when it can be most successfully treated.
