Screening Mammograms Reduce Risk of Breast Cancer Mortality by 49%

Regular participation in screening mammography lowers the opportunity for cancer to grow before it is detected, reducing the risk of dying from breast cancer. Skipping even one screening mammogram can increase a woman's risk of dying from breast cancer, says a study involving more than half a million women. 

This study found that women who attended two regularly scheduled mammography appointments before a cancer diagnosis had a 49% lower risk of breast cancer mortality and a 50% lower risk of breast cancer death within 10 years of diagnosis. 

If you are due or past due for your mammogram, we encourage you to schedule your appointment. Do not put off until tomorrow what matters today. Call 212-794-2500 or click here to schedule your appointment today!
