One in seven women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. A
mammogram, which is an X-ray of the breast, is the best way to find
cancer of the breast in its earliest stages—up to two years before it
can be felt or other symptoms appear. If breast cancer is detected
early, 90 percent of women can be treated successfully.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 and above have a screening mammogram,
or X-ray of both breasts, every one to two years, or as suggested by
their physicians. Screening mammography is one of three steps the
American Cancer Society recommends for early detection of breast cancer.
The other two are an annual clinical examination by a healthcare
provider and optional monthly self-breast examination for women over 20
years of age. A diagnostic mammogram is performed if there is a lump, skin discoloration, skin dimpling or other suspicious findings of the breast or mammogram.
