The Importance of Education During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The importance of screening

Every woman has a personal story regarding how her cancer was discovered. A common way of detection is through a mammogram screening. According to the CDC, over 65% of women over the age of 40 have received mammograms in the last 2 years. This is great news, because these screenings are a great tool for detecting breast cancer. Mammograms are an x-ray picture of the breasts and can highlight tumors that cannot be felt in self-exams.
