Breast Cancer Care & Screening at Livingston HealthCare
Every three minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast
cancer. Early detection is often the key to successful treatment and recovery.
Women over 40 should get a mammogram each year. Women under 40 should
have clinical breast exams every three years, and all women should conduct
monthly breast self-exams. View this page for tips and care advice from
the team at Livingston HealthCare.
Prevention / Screening Tips
You can help protect yourself. Be proactive: Know your risk, get your screenings,
and stay healthy! There are things you can do to help reduce your risk
and ensure that if you have breast cancer, you catch it early.
- Live a healthy lifestyle: don't smoke, maintain a healthy weight and
- Don't forget your monthly breast self-exams.
- Get regular clinical breast exams when you see your doctor and mammograms
after age 40.
Currently, mammograms are the best tool we have for detecting breast cancer.
Survival is highly dependent on early diagnosis. The American Cancer Society
recommends that women 40 and over have a screening mammogram every year.
