Getting a Mammogram Could Save Your Life

Breast cancers found during routine screening are more likely to be smaller and less likely to have spread outside the breast. This makes them easier to treat and improves the chance of being cured.

Low-dose X-rays of the breast called mammograms are the most common screening exams. The American Cancer Society recommends that women ages 55 and older get a mammogram every two years.

If you haven’t already, ask your primary care provider (PCP) about scheduling a mammogram.
