October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

  • Breast cancer can be present in both men and women, but more often in women.  Early detection is key in diagnosis of the disease.  “Screening” mammograms, those done when there are no symptoms, are recommended annually, for women of average risk, beginning at age 40.
  • Further definition of “average risk” is available on the American Cancer Society website. A “diagnostic” mammogram, often followed by additional imaging, will be recommended when symptoms, or an area of concern are present.
  • The pandemic has unfortunately reduced many health screenings, but it is important to continue to have regular breast checkups and screenings. Early diagnosis and treatment is key in breast cancer treatment.  If you notice an area of concern do not let this go without medical attention, and remember to get your mammograms as recommended by your doctor.
  • If you need financial assistance to receive a mammogram, the Carroll County Health Department is available to help.
