Over 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Getting a yearly mammogram is the best way to find breast cancer early. Mammograms are breast cancer screening tests that can detect a lump before you or your doctor can feel it. This helps to detect breast cancer early, when itâs most treatable. All women over 40 should have a mammogram every 12 months â andÂ Medicare covers it at no costÂ if your doctor accepts assignment. Talk to your doctor about risk factors and to schedule your next screening.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so letâs join together in the fight against breast cancer.
