Women today have a higher rate than ever of breast cancer survival. The earlier you discover a lump or abnormality in your breast the better your chances of successful breast cancer treatment. Mammograms can find a small lump or abnormality much sooner than you would be able to feel it on your own. It is an important part of women’s healthcare to perform regular self-breast exams and schedule a mammogram every year starting at the age 40. Often a lump is neither malignant nor cancerous, simply a result of a benign condition. It is important to have a specialist diagnose your breast condition by scheduling a mammogram and reviewing the results.
