Breast Cancer

Breast cancer screening is one of three age-based cancer screening currently recommended for all women by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, routine breast cancer screening is the most effective way to reduce the burden of breast cancer by finding breast cancer early when it is easier to treat.
