WFTX - October marks breast cancer awareness month. And a lot of women may be wondering if mammograms are the best way to fight breast cancer.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, regular mammograms are still the best tests physicians use to find early cases of breast cancer; in some situations up to three years, before a lump can be felt.
According to the guidelines, women should have mammograms every two years after the age of 50.
It's recommended women talk to their doctors to see which type of mammography is the best for them.
