Breast Cancer Awareness: Early Detection Saves Lives

Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women. Although it's one of the deadliest cancers in the United States, breast cancer is often treatable when detected early.

Mammograms, which are low-dose x-rays of the breast, continue to be vital in the early detection of breast cancer. To learn more, read the publication Mammograms by FDA's Office of Women's Health. You can read it online, download it as a PDF, and order print copies for yourself and loved ones.
