Did you know that February is National Cancer Prevention Month?

An important preventative test that women can take part in is getting an annual mammogram to check for breast cancer. The recommended age to start getting mammograms is 40, but you can discuss this with your Physician to see what the best age for you to began these annual exams based on your family and personal health history.

If your mother, daughter, or sister has had or currently has breast cancer statistically you may be twice as likely to develop the disease. The good news is that up to 90% of women who find and treat breast cancer during its early stages remain cancer-free after 5 years! That’s reason enough to take preventative steps to ensure your health by getting a mammogram every year.

There are many tests that can be done by a medical care professional if a lump is found including mammogram, ultrasound, and/or biopsy.
