Breast and colon cancer are the two most common cancers in women and there are screening programs for both.
No cancer screening test is perfect.
No cancer screening test never hurts.
But they all either reduce the chance of getting cancer or increase the chance of catching it at an earlier stage!
The trident of self breast exams, provider exams, and mammograms saves lives!
In 20 some years of providing healthcare for women I have seen too many cancers caught too late, please listen and act, schedule your mammogram today!
