Early Detection Saves lives - Waiting Doesn't 

Recent federal recommendations have changed to delay a woman’s first breast cancer screening exam by a decade from age 40 to age 50. This change has the potential to adversely affect the breast health of many women. 

Wake Forest Baptist Health Outpatient Imaging is committed to bringing awareness to breast cancer and continues to advocate for early detection starting at age 40!

  • The Mayo Clinic, The American College of Radiology, The Society of Breast Imaging, and The National Comprehensive Cancer Network, all still recommend starting at age 40.

  • Mammography screenings = increased survival rates. Woman who start annual screening 
    at 40 are 20-60% more likely to survive a breast cancer diagnosis.

  • Cancers found at a later stage may require more aggressive treatment. Earlier detection means more treatment options are available.

  • 3D Mammography offers advanced capabilities which help to identify abnormalities. Now, young women with dense breast tissue can receive a more accurate mammogram.

If you are 40 or older, complete this form to request your screening mammogram now
Doing so is your first step to ensure the best for your overall breast health.
