The Importance of Mammography: What Every Woman Should Know

the-importance-of-mammography-what-every-woman-should-knowSince 1990, mammograms have helped reduce breast cancer mortality in the US by nearly 40%. The reason is early detection – catching tumors before they have a chance to grow and spread. Yet there is still some controversy about how soon, and how often, a woman should get a mammogram. This is an especially important question for women living in Marin, where breast cancer rates have historically been higher than in the rest of the United States.

Listen as Leah Kelley, MD, an award-winning breast surgeon and Medical Director of the Breast Program at MarinHealth Medical Center, weighs in on the benefits of mammography. Dr. Kelley also discusses MarinHealth Medical Center’s renowned cancer program, new Breast Health Center, and high-risk breast program.
