What You Need To Know About Your First Mammogram
So, you just turned 40. You know what that calls for? Friends, presents, cocktails, and most likely your first mammogram. Join us as we break down the things you need to know for your screening.

Breast Health

As a woman, you have health needs that are as special and specific as your shoe size, your hair color, and your smile. Your breast health depends on a variety of factors, including your family history, genetic makeup, and lifestyle choices.

Breast cancer has likely affected a woman you know—maybe a family member or a loved one. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. It’s crucial to understand the basics of breast health, including when to start screenings, what to expect if you or a loved one are diagnosed, and how to live well during and after treatment.
