Early diagnosis is key

Early detection is crucial with breast cancer, and can often result in better prognosis and treatment plan options. If you’re 40 or older, it’s time to think about getting your mammogram. Women who are 40 and older should discuss with their healthcare provider when to begin breast cancer screening.* Women with a family history of breast cancer should talk with their doctor about what’s best for them.

When Diane Hennebert turned 41 during the COVID-19 pandemic, she didn’t celebrate it as in previous years, due to social distancing. Since it had been such a unique year, she also figured she could probably wait to get her mammogram screening the following year, especially since her first mammogram at age 40 came back clear. However, witnessing the impact of breast cancer in someone close to her was one of the main factors that eventually encouraged Diane to go ahead and schedule her screening in December of 2020.
