Get Tested for Breast Cancer

Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram every 1 to 2 years. A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast.
A mammogram along with a breast exam by your doctor or nurse can find breast cancer early. Finding breast cancer early means that you have a better chance of surviving the disease.
Call your doctor or clinic for a mammogram today.
