About one in eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Less than 50% of women in Phelps Health’s six-county service area receive their yearly mammogram despite the potential increased health outcomes that follow early detection. The American College of Radiology recommends yearly mammograms starting at age 40 or earlier if there is an immediate family history of breast cancer.
