Understanding Mammograms (Sponsored Content)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that women aged 50 and older get a mammography every two years while other organizations recommend screenings every year starting at age 40.

Mammograms can sound pretty intimidating if you’ve never had one before. The following link provided by Las Palmas Medical Center, shows you what you can expect before, during, and after your examination and additionally provides the definitions to medical terms that you may not be familiar with.
