A Fighter's Guide
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Our most important weapon is knowledge. The top risks for breast cancer are being female and being over the age of 40. More than 75% of breast cancers occur without a family history of the disease. Be aware of your body and talk to your doctor about changes.
3D mammography is the latest development in the fight against breast cancer and has made it possible for radiologists to find cancers earlier, at their most treatable stages. 3D has made it easier to tell normal tissue from abnormal, decreasing the number of times we require follow-up studies.
When caught early, survival rates for breast cancer exceed 97%. Early detection works! Mammography saves lives.
