Why is your breast health important?

Did you know that as many as 60-70% of women diagnosed with breast cancer do not have any known risk factors? This is why routine care of your breasts, regardless of your age and family history, is important for both the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. Contrary to popular belief, the risk for breast cancer begins to increase at a woman's first conception, which is why women should have the following screening for the early detection of breast cancer:

  • Conduct regular breast self-exams
  • Request your doctor perform a breast exam at your annual well-woman visit 
  • Receive a mammogram each year beginning at age 40
