- Mammography does not prevent breast cancer, but it can save lives if breast cancer is detected as early as possible.
- Early detection of breast cancer reduces the risk of dying from the disease by 30% or more. This means that more women on cancer treatment can keep their breast.
- Recommendations are that women should start having mammograms after 40 years of age. If they consider that they are at high risk, due to a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, or have previously received a treatment with chest radiation, it is recommended that you start having annual mammograms at an earlier age (usually around 30 years old) However, this is determined by the doctor.
- Digital mammography only uses a tiny amount of radiation, which makes it safer.
- Mammography is a quick procedure (about 15 minutes), and discomfort is minimal for most women and men.
