Breast cancer is the most common type of non-skin cancer among women in this country. It affects more than 200,000 American women annually.
Screening for breast cancer before there are symptoms can be important. Screening can help doctors find and treat cancer early. The earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chances that treatment will work. The goal is to find cancers before they start to cause symptoms. Talk to your doctor about when to start and how often to screen for breast cancer.Source: American Cancer Society
