With our convenient location access to screening mammograms has never been easier. Mammograms are an excellent tool for finding early stage breast cancer resulting in a decrease of mortality. We recommend beginning annual mammograms at age 40 based on screening recommendations from the American Cancer Society, American College of Radiology, American Medical Association, National Cancer Institute, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
Breast cancer is the most common concern in U.S. women. More than 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected within the next year and almost 40,000 women will pass away from this disease. The lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is one in six overall and one in eight for invasive disease.
