Breast Cancer Awareness Month - October

Its October.......wear the pink ribbon in support of the breast cancer awareness month.

Women above the age of 40 are strongly encourage to undergo Mammogram. What exactly are Mammograms?

Mammography is the x-ray of the breasts. It is an effective way to detect any small lumps which are not palpable (felt by hands). Early detection of breast cancer in its early stages can save breasts and lives.

Frequency of Mammogram:

Women aged between 40 to 49 years old = once every year

Women aged above 50 years old = once every two years
