Why Should You Get a Mammogram?
Mammograms are basically x-ray pictures of the breast, and they can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Screenings are an essential part of breast health and can often detect cancer in its earliest stages when it's easier to treat. Most women should begin getting annual screenings at age 40, or earlier if there is a family history of breast cancer. If an abnormality is found, a nurse navigator at Moncrief Cancer Institute will personally contact you and guide you through a plan of action.
