Breast Cancer Awareness Month ~ Med First and YOU!

Early Screening Saves Lives

Did you know:

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, with one in eight women in the United States diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

CDC and United States Preventative Services Task Force Recommend:

  • Women who are 50 to 74 years old and are at average risk for breast cancer get a mammogram every two years.
  • Women who are 40 to 49 years old should talk to their doctor or other health care professional about when to start and how often to get a mammogram.
  • Women, along with their Medical Provider, should weigh the benefits and risks of screening tests when deciding whether to begin getting mammograms before age 50.

Risk Factors:

  • Not enough exercise
  • Obesity
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
  • Family history of breast cancer
