October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. It is estimated that in 2021, approximately 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer. Screening tests are used to find cancer before a person has any symptoms.

The American Cancer Society Recommends the following Breast Cancer Screening Schedule:

  • Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (x-rays of the breast) if they wish to do so.
  • Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
  • Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or can continue yearly screening.
  • Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer

Contact your Provider to discuss your breast cancer screening options!
