Breast Cancer Screening
Mammograms are currently effective for detecting breast cancer. If you are able to detect breast cancer as early as possible, then you can hopefully stop cancer from spreading. There is, however, not a definite conclusion on when and how often a woman should have such tests, as the risk of breast cancer increases as you age. Annual screenings can, however, begin from age 45. If you have a family history of the disease or other issues, you need to talk to your doctor about starting annual screening as early as possible.
