An estimated one in every eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her life. This statistic makes breast cancer the second highest cause of cancer death in women, second only to lung cancer.
Mammography is an invaluable early detection tool for breast cancer. A baseline mammogram is recommended for women ages 35 to 39. Women ages 40 and older should have a mammogram every year.
At OB/GYN Associates of Alabama, we want to make your mammogram as comfortable as possible, both physically and mentally. We offer a highly experienced technician, who provides a thorough screening and the latest educational information on breast care.
