Mammogram Guidelines for All Women
One of the most important things women can do for their health is to have regular mammograms. A mammogram can show a tumor in the breast before it can be felt during a self-exam, and early detection is one of the key factors for successfully battling cancer. Watch this video to learn more.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women over age 40 have yearly mammograms. If you have certain breast cancer risk factors, such as a family history of the illness, your doctor may recommend that you start screenings earlier or have them more regularly.
