Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center Encourages Women to Schedule a Mammogram
October 14, 2022
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month…The Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center wants you to be an advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness. Getting a mammogram is an important step women can take to protect their health. The best protection is early detection. Help spread the word. Encourage your mother, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, co-workers, neighbors and friends to schedule their mammogram.
Breast Screening Guidelines for Women:
Clinical breast examinations every 1-3 years from age 25-39, then annually from age 40 on.
Begin annual screening mammography at age 40 years.
Monthly self breast exams starting at age 18 years old, a week after their period when hormones are lowest. Women should be familiar with how their breasts normally look and feel and should report any changes to their health care provider.
