By age 25, women should talk to their doctor about their breast cancer risk
Did you know that more women under the age of 40 are getting breast cancer? And that these cancers are often more deadly?
Your listeners need to know that the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) has new breast cancer screening guidelines that urge all women – especially Black and Jewish women – to speak to their doctor by age 25 about their risk of getting breast cancer.
Together, they can decide:
• If she needs a mammogram before age 40.
• Need other tests – like an MRI – with your yearly mammogram.
• Or – if at high risk – should be checked more than once a year.
Please help us ensure that your listeners hear this potentially lifesaving information. Review and download the spots you find most useful. We also encourage your listeners to visit Mammography Saves Lives to learn more about talking to their doctor about their breast cancer risk.
