Scheduling your yearly check-up with your SIMED doctor? Make sure to discuss scheduling the tests you need to find breast cancer early. It could help save your life.
Regular mammograms can help find breast cancer early, when the disease is small, less likely to have spread, and easier to treat.
Getting tested for breast cancer can make a dramatic difference in a woman’s chances of surviving the disease. The 5-year survival rate for breast cancer that has not spread to lymph nodes or other locations outside the breast is 99%. However, if the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes, the rate drops to 85%. And if it has spread to other organs, the 5-year survival rate drops to 25%.
So don’t wait –remind the women you care about to get regular mammograms.
Testing for breast cancer is not perfect and mammograms can miss some breast cancers, so be sure to tell your doctor right away about any changes you notice in the way your breasts look and feel. And if you know you have a family or personal history of breast cancer or think you might be at higher risk than other women, discuss this with your doctor so you can decide on the screening schedule that’s right for you.
Speak with your SIMED healthcare provider today to learn how you can schedule your mammogram.
