Why are mammograms important?
- Since 1990, mammography has reduced breast cancer deaths by 1/3
- 75% of all women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have a family history and aren’t considered high risk
- Mammograms can detect abnormalities up to 2 years before a patient or physician can feel them
“I was not treated as a number. The doctors and nurses held my hand and took the time to explain information to me. They let me cry when I needed to cry. Everyone was so reassuring.”
