Mammography SSJQueens89


A mammogram is a low-dose x-ray exam of breasts, which can help to identify cancer in its early stages and lead to better outcomes. Through mammograms, physicians can see growths and changes that cannot be felt through a physical exam.

Yearly mammograms are recommended for women ages 40 and older. Those who have a family history of breast cancer or who experience symptoms may have an increased risk and should speak with their healthcare provider about getting screened early.
