Breast Cancer Screening


Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer in women, impacting one out of every eight women at some point in their lives. Despite the fact that it is more frequent in older women, breast cancer seldom strikes women under the age of 45. Women under the age of 45 account for around 9% of all new cases of breast cancer in the United States. The most important methods for preventing breast cancer deaths are early detection and cutting-edge cancer treatment. Breast cancer that is detected early, when it is little and hasn’t spread, is easier to treat. The most accurate method for identifying breast cancer early is through frequent screening examinations. According to the American Cancer Society, screening is recommended for both women who are at medium risk of breast cancer and those who are at high risk. Breast cancer screening tests are used to detect the disease before symptoms such as a palpable lump appear. Screening tests and exams are used to identify illness in persons who do not exhibit symptoms. Clinical and self-breast examinations, mammography, genetic screening, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging have all been used as screening treatments.
