A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the breasts, used to detect and diagnose breast diseases. A woman’s chance of developing cancer in her lifetime is 1 in 8. A new breast cancer patient is diagnosed every 2.5 minutes. Over 2 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the US today. The American Cancer Society recommends that all women have a baseline screening mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40. Beginning at the age of 40, women should have an annual screening mammogram. While having a mammogram you may experience some discomfort for a brief time during each x-ray, but it should not be painful. Mammography is the best tool in early detection of breast cancer giving patients a much better chance of survival and leading a long, productive life. Early detection saves lives.
