Breast Cancer Screening in Canada
Knowledge is power when it comes to your breast health.
Screening for breast cancer is your choice and should be based on your own personal values. It's recommended that you have a discussion with your primary care provider about: your genetic risk, lifestyle, and personal health history. 75% of women who develop breast cancer have no family history of breast cancer and no risk factors other than being women. A decision about your breast health includes a look at the benefits and limitations of mammograms.
