If you are at a high risk for breast cancer, don’t wait until you’re 40 for a mammogram.
Early mammograms can help provide you with peace of mind.
Although they are recommended annually after you turn 40, scheduling a baseline mammogram at 35 is important when you are a high risk individual. If your family has a history of breast cancer, your insurance provider may even cover an early test.
Also, an annual exam with your OB/GYN is the best single step you can take against long-term potential health risks like breast cancer. The yearly exam is where your doctor can notice any early warning signs and take immediate steps to address them.
