Breast Cancer Screenings
Why Breast Cancer Screenings are Recommended
Screening for breast cancer is an important preventive measure for all women. If you have a higher risk of developing breast cancer, your doctor may recommend you get screened earlier and more often than women at average risk.
The goal of a breast cancer screening is to find cancer early, when it is most treatable (ideally, before symptoms develop). Once you have symptoms, breast cancer is usually more advanced and more difficult to treat.
Regular screenings can help your doctor find precancerous changes and may possibly prevent cancer altogether.
