There just aren’t enough hours in the day for busy schedules, but the last thing that should be neglected is your health. One out of every eight women will develop breast cancer in their life, and mammograms are the most effective form of early detection.
Many women with breast cancer have no symptoms, which makes screening even more important. The American Cancer Society recommends for women of average risk (no personal or family history or genetic predisposition):
- Age 40-44 – optional mammogram
- Age 45-55 – annual mammogram
- Age 55+ – option for mammogram every 2 years
