GETTING A MAMMOGRAM

Category: Mammograms

Introduction

Get a Mammogram Every 1 to 2 Years

Take care of your health now, so you can be there for your family later.

Are you at risk for breast cancer?

Simply being a woman and getting older puts you at risk for breast cancer. The older you are, the greater your chances of getting breast cancer. Also, you are at higher risk if your mother, sister, or daughter has had breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the leading cancer among women of many Asian and Pacific Islander groups in the U.S. Many women do not know they have breast cancer until it is advanced.

Finding the disease early with mammograms and breast exams by your doctor or nurse can save your life. For yourself and your family, call your doctor for an exam and mammogram today.
