Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women, affecting one in every eight women in the United States. At Charlotte Radiology, we believe the key to beating this statistic and detecting breast cancer early is yearly, quality mammograms (starting at age 40), monthly self breast exams and regular clinical examination.
