The best defense against breast cancer is early detection. You should get regular mammograms according to the schedule your doctor has recommended. Generally, women over 40 and younger women with a family history of breast cancer should have annual mammograms. Mammograms use a low-powered X-ray to produce images of breast tissue that can detect abnormalities before they can be felt.
