Learn about screenings, diagnostics, treatment and resources
Breast cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in the United States and the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in U.S. women. According to the American Cancer Society, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most-treatable stages helps produce the best possible outcomes.
Screening Guidelines: The American Cancer Society recommends that women get a screening mammogram at age 40, and continue with yearly mammograms for as long as they are in good health.
