National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. 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.

  • 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.
     

  • 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.

 

If you are worried about the cost of a mammogram or don’t have health insurance, you may be able to get a free mammogram through the Michigan Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) at LMAS District Health Department. This program provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings and assistance with follow-up services for low-income women, between the ages of 40 to 64 with no insurance or limited health insurance meeting income guidelines.
