Why should I have a mammogram?
Early detection of breast cancer could just save your life. By increasing the number of cancers detected in the earliest and most curable state, more lives are saved each year.
Who should have a mammogram?
If you have no signs or symptoms of breast abnormalities, we suggest that you schedule a mammogram screening according to the American Cancer Societyís recommendations:
- Women 40 years of age and older should have routine mammograms every year.
- Women who are at a high risk for being diagnosed with breast cancer should talk with their health-care providers. Questions to ask should include: At what age should I start getting a mammogram? How often should I get a mammogram?
When should I talk my health-care provider?
Contact your primary health-care provider as soon as possible for an evaluation if any change occurs in your breasts. Such changes include:
-Development of a lump
-Redness or cracking of the nipple or breast skin
-Any discharge other than milk, especially if spontaneous
