Early detection of breast cancer through mammography greatly improves treatment options, the chances for successful treatment, and survival. Mammography is the single most effective method of early detection, since it can identify cancer several years before physical symptoms develop. Treatment is more successful when cancer is discovered early.
It is especially important that women receive regular mammograms. Studies have shown that many breast cancers are diagnosed as larger, more advanced cancers simply because too much time has elapsed from the date of the last normal mammogram. (Source: American Cancer Society)
