Mammograms: What to Expect
Breast cancer is the most common cancer (other than skin cancer) affecting women in the United States. However, thanks to early detection and medical advances in treatment, millions of women survive the disease.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and The American Cancer Society works to actively fight this disease by helping women get tested and detect cancer earlier and funds research that helps prevent, find and treat breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and over receive a mammogram on an annual basis.
