The Importance of Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. Early detection is key to preventing breast cancer deaths and improving treatment outcomes.

What is Mammography?

A simple procedure that uses X-rays to take pictures of breast tissue, mammography allows radiologists to see cancers while they are still small.

How Does Mammography Help?

Scientific evidence proves that mammography saves lives. Since 1990, screening mammography has helped to reduce breast cancer deaths by 1/32.

Who is Screening Mammography For?

Breast cancer screening is most effective when mammography is performed once per year beginning at age 40. These guidelines would reduce mortality by 7 percent more than screening every two years beginning at age 503.

Are There Any Risks?

Some women receive incorrect, false-positive results and additional testing is recommended: 10% are recalled for more imaging, 2% are recommended for needle biopsy and 0.5% are diagnosed with cancer.
