Mammograms Remain the Most Reliable Method for Detecting Breast Cancer
Dr. Brian Owens, radiologist, explains the importance of yearly mammograms for women 40 and over. More frequent mammograms are recommended for those with a family history and those with a genetic predisposition for breast cancer.
Some women prefer self-examination to mammograms. Unfortunately, by the time they feel the breast cancer, it may be at an advanced stage.
