Breast cancer and Mammogram
« on: June 03, 2012, 07:58:15 AM »
Mammogram
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, and the mammogram remains the most basic tool used to screen for tumors, aside from physical examination of the breasts.

What it is: A specialized X-ray of the breast. Some hospitals now use digital mammograms; others continue to use film. Both are effective, but research shows that digital mammography is significantly better for women who are younger than age 50 or have very dense breasts, according to the National Cancer Institute.

When to start: Age 40; however, if your mother or sister was diagnosed with breast cancer, especially if she was younger than 40, experts recommend starting mammograms five to ten years earlier than the age at which your relative was diagnosed.

How often: Every year. (Disregard recent controversy over mammogram frequency until final recommendations are issued.)
