In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes. Eighty percent of these women do not have any of the reported risk factors, other than being female and aging.
The key to surviving breast cancer is early diagnosis. Regular screening mammograms, breast self-exams and yearly breast exams by your physician can help.
Mammograms are the first line of defense against breast cancer, and remain the most reliable diagnostic tool for doctors. A baseline mammogram between the ages of 35-39, even if you don't have any symptoms of breast cancer, is a good idea because it can be used to compare with later mammograms. As part of our commitment to your health and wellness, Piedmont offers comprehensive mammography services. Convenient locations in Atlanta, Fayetteville, Newnan, Stockbridge and Jasper make it easy for women in greater Atlanta and North Georgia to get a mammogram.
