Demystifying The Mammogram Discussion: New Resources Can Help
Please post these teaser videos to your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sites to direct women to Mammography Saves Lives where they can find answers to questions about mammography – including:
- Why start getting mammograms at age 40 and why every year?
- What is the downside to getting checked – or not checked – each year for breast cancer?
- What are “overdiagnosis” and “false positive exams” and should they affect when I get tested?
- What is a breast cancer risk assessment and why should I do that at 30 (instead of 40)?
New Mammography Saves Lives (MSL) coalition* videos and downloadable resources answer questions, clear confusion and help women talk to their doctors about when to get screened for the most common cancer in women.
