A mammogram is a special breast x-ray that can reveal the presence of small cancers up to 2 years before they can be felt by you or your health care provider.
You should begin mammogram screening at age 40. By age 50, when the incidence of breast cancer increases, annual mammogram screening is crucial. Remember, early detection can give you the gift of a lifetime.
Mammograms are safe when performed at an accredited facility. Alliance Community Hospital is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Early diagnosis of breast cancer saves lives
Most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.
As you get older, your risk of having breast cancer increases.
Mammography is safe, and having a mammogram is easier than you think.
- Compliment your regular mammograms by seeing your doctor or other health care provider on a regular basis, and examining your breasts monthly.
