  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Limit alcohol.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Know what is normal for your breasts.
  • Report changes to your doctor.

Reasons to get a mammogram

  • The greatest risks for getting breast cancer are being a woman and getting older. Most breast cancers occur in women aged 50 and older.
  • Finding breast cancer early can help save your life.
  • Most women that are diagnosed have no history of breast cancer in their families.
  • Getting a mammogram is easier than you think!
