Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women after skin cancer. About 1 in 8 women
born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. (1) If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them. (2) If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often. Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

Este mes de octubre se dedica anualmente a concientizar a todas las mujeres y sus familiares y amistades sobre la realidad del cáncer de la mama. Queremos animar a todas las mujeres de nuestra comunidad y sus familiares y amistades que vayan a su médico y/o ginecólogo para hacer los examines necesarios.
