The saying that “Early Detection Save Lives” is especially true in diagnosis of breast and cervical cancer. Regular mammograms in women over the age of 40 can find very early breast cancer when treatment is much easier and more effective. Although breast cancer does occur in younger women, as a woman gets older her chances of developing breast cancer become greater. Monthly breast self-exam, a yearly check-up from a medical provider and a yearly mammogram are all-important to saving lives from breast cancer. Regular Pap tests can find early cervical cancer when it can be completely cured. If cost is a problem, call the Well Woman Program. FREE mammograms and Pap tests for women, ages 40-64, which do not have insurance for these important tests, can be provided by well woman of Northwest Illinois (Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program).
