I had a mammogram today ... have you had yours?
If you're 40 years old or older and haven't had a mammogram yet ... it's time.
If you have a mother, daughter, sister or grandmother who had breast cancer, it is recommended that you start regular mammograms five years before you reach the age of their diagnosis, or by age 35.
For more information about breast cancer and mammograms, visit The National Breast Cancer Foundation website at http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/ and also the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month website at http://www.nbcam.org.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a mammogram and breast health pdf booklet that you can view at Mammograms & Breast Health. This booklet is not copyrighted and can be freely duplicated and distributed.
Don't wait to get your mammogram. Early detection could save your life.
