Lovelace Makes Breast Cancer Screenings Easier

Prime Time, August Issue

Lovelace Health System knows that mammograms and early detection can save lives for breast cancer patients. Because mammograms are a doctor’s best tool for detecting changes in your breasts, they are vital in assessing your total breast health. The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram for all women by age 40 and annual mammograms after that.  Compared to other cancers, breast cancer is more treatable if found early. Currently, mammography, monthly breast exams and clinical breast exams are the main ways to screen for breast cancer.
