What Women in Their 70s Need to Know
What I tell women in their 70s you have a long trajectory ahead of you and we want to add decades to your life. We catch a lot of breast cancers in women in their 70s and we can help those patients living longer and longer.
What Women in Their 60s Need to Know
What I tell my patients in the 60s is that we need you to live a long life and you have decades ahead of you. Let us help you get there. Get your yearly mammogram. Every time you skip a year with a mammogram, you give breast cancer a chance to grow. The doubling time of breast cancer is right at one year. You give cancer a leg up every time you skip a mammogram.
What Women Should Know About Menopause and Breast Health
50s are an important age for breast health. Breast tissue and breast cancers are very sensitive to changes in hormones and this is the decade that menopause is most common. Because of that, breast cancer can happen. A yearly mammogram can save your life.
Why the 40-to-50 Year Window is Important for Breast Health
The 40-to-50 year old window is so important for breast health. One in six breast cancers are diagnosed in this decade and those tend to be more aggressive. If you look at years of life extended that is where we can have the largest impact. We want our 40 year olds to live to their 90s and 100s. That's our goal. Every time you skip a year with a mammogram you give breast cancer a chance...
Breast Cancer Risk Factors (Video)
For women in their 30s, have the conversation about risk factors. If your health care provider doesn't bring it up, you bring it up. This decade is super important to understand who needs more attention. Most patients don't need to start mammograms at this age but some do. Some can benefit from an ultrasound or even an MRI. Understand your risk factors.
Breast Health is Ageless
Breast health doesn't just start at 40 and end at 50. Breast health is relevant from the 20s where you get awareness from what a self-exam is like and breast health doesn't just stop at 70. I've diagnosed breast cancer in a 93-year old and they continued to surgery and had a great outcome. We can add decades to women's lives in the 70s, in the 80s, and beyond.
Ask the Question, Save a Life
I challenge all of you to ask one simple question and save a life: Have you had your screening mammogram? If you ask 200 women if they've had their screening mammogram and you get 200 women to get their screening mammogram, statistically you will save at least one life. Ask the question, have you had your screening mammogram?
Don't Give Breast Cancer a Leg Up
Every time you skip a year with a mammogram, you give breast cancer a chance to grow. The doubling time of breast cancer is right at one year. You give cancer a leg up every time you skip a mammogram.
