Have you had your mammogram this year? Mammograms are breast cancer screening tests that can often detect a lump before you or your doctor can feel it. This can help detect breast cancer early, when it’s the most treatable. All women over 40 should have a screening mammogram every 12 months – and Medicare covers it for free if your doctor accepts assignment.
Talk to your doctor about risk factors, and to schedule your next screening. Ask your family members and friends if they’ve had theirs – share the health.
