Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast-cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. http://www.mygnp.com/breast-cancer-screening-and-examination#breast-cancer-screening
When it comes to breast cancer risk, not all hormone therapies are created equal. While some may continue to increase the risk of cancer years after a patient stops taking the medications, others can decrease the odds of getting the disease.
