Make Time for Your Mammogram

Early detection can save your life. An annual mammogram can find cancer up to three years before symptoms appear, making it easier to treat. A mammogram is an X-ray image of the breast, which doctors use to look for early signs of breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. Mammography is used as both a diagnostic and screening tool. Don't delay. Ask your doctor if you are a candidate for a mammogram.
