National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As with most diseases, early detection is key. When breast cancer is diagnosed early, it is easier to treat and treatment is much more likely to be successful. Research shows that survival rate is more than 95 percent if breast cancer is caught at an early stage. The National Cancer Institute encourages women 40 and older to have a mammogram every 1-2 years. And the American Cancer Society recommends women in their 20s and 30s get a clinical breast exam as part of their regular physical exam at least once every three years.
