Why Mammograms Are Important
Early Detection is Key
One out of every eight women will have breast cancer during her lifetime, but with early detection, the cure rate for breast cancer can be as high as 96%.
A screening mammogram is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. This can help find cancer at an early stage. When abnormal tissue or cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat. By the time symptoms appear, cancer may have begun to spread.
