Did you know that mammograms can spot tumors up to two years before you can feel them? Or that when detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent?¹
So why – despite these facts – did only half of U.S. women ages 40 and older get an annual mammogram last year?²
Some popular reasons:
- “I’m concerned it will hurt.”
- “I’m worried about radiation.”
- “Breast cancer doesn’t run in my family.”
- “I don’t want to get bad news.”
- “I’m just too busy.”
