THE CHANGING FACE OF MAMMOGRAMS

The members of our country are in new debates about various health care topics and we are paying close attention to those discussions. We want to pass this helpful information on to our community members.  One of the major changes in this debate is when to have mammograms and who should have mammograms.  So, to shed some light on this subject and share some very good information we are dedicating this tip of the month to MAMMOGRAMS.

Please visit the website for The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, http://www.acog.org/from_home/Misc/uspstfResponse.cfm, with their response to the New Breast Cancer Screening Recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

Breast self exams are still the number one source of detecting breast cancer.  Continue your exams and always be honest and open with your health care provider.

Have a safe and healthy February.
