Breast Cancer Treatment
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in American women, according to the American Cancer Society. While women over 50 are most likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, it can still occur in younger women.
What To Know
Early detection is an important aspect of treating breast cancer. Mammograms can detect breast cancer up to two years prior to a tumor being felt by an individual. For most women, routine mammograms should begin at age 50.
