Getting screened for cancer is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Guthrie recommends screenings as an essential component of your overall health and well-being.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month
Guthrie recommends annual mammograms beginning at age 40 in order to detect changes in the breast.
A mammogram is a quick and easy exam that uses x-ray technology to identify any abnormal areas or disease. Finding breast cancer as early as possible is important to increase treatment options and success rates.
Mammography significantly reduces breast cancer death and the most lives are saved when women undergo annual screening. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 100 percent when the cancer is detected between Stage 0 and Stage 1.
