Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women. It happens more frequently in women over 50 but can occur in younger women especially if there is a family history. Some of the risk factors for breast cancer include taking hormone replacements during menopause, using oral birth control pills, and not breastfeeding after giving birth. A mammogram is an easy way to screen for breast cancer. It is an x-ray of the breast to look for abnormal tissue. With improvements in technology, individuals can now obtain a smart curve or 3D mammogram. A 3D mammogram improves the probability of detecting breast cancer in individuals with large or dense breast. If you are a woman, 40 years, or older, consider getting a screening mammogram every one to two years. Gentlemen, encourage the ladies in your life to get a mammogram. If treated early, the survival rate for localized breast cancer is 99%.
