Do I Really Need a Mammogram?

You may have heard conflicting thoughts on whether you need a mammogram or not.

A few simple facts can help to answer this question for good:

  • Breast cancer affects one out of every nine women in the U.S.
  • Mammograms are the most effective way to detect breast cancer in its early stages.
  • A mammogram can detect a lump often years before it can be felt in a breast exam.
  • When breast cancer is detected early, it gives you more treatment options.

A mammogram is simple and powerful protection against breast cancer.
