In a letter from the President / CEO of Solis Mammography, James Polfreman, he clarifies early detection in women's breast health:
"Solis Mammography is on a mission to educate women about important decisions about breast health. Solis believes that saving lives is job one and quality of life runs a close second.
Solis presents six (6) facts that help women decide for themselves:
a) mammography is the closest thing we have to a cure;
b) Twenty precent of the women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2015 were under the age of 50;
c) The average size of a tumor found through self-exam was that of a walnut, the average size of a tumor found through mammography was pea sized;
d) When you find a tumor earlier, your choices are better, less invasive or aggressive and less expensive;
e) Insurance companies still pay 100% of 2D mammograms starting at age 40;
f) 3D mammography provides an excellent upgrade to 2D mammograms helping radiologist have an even clearer image of breast tissue.
Peace of mind and overall wellness come from getting the facts at your annual mammogram.
- According to the American Cancer Society, the 5-year survival rate is 100 percent for women diagnosed with stage 0 and 1 breast cancer."
There has been two major recommendations to when a woman should begin her mammogram -- this has become confusing and complicated for women -- which it should not be.
Women should begin their mammograms at 40 because early detection is the healthiest!!!
