Breast cancer is one of the common types of cancer in women around the world. There are many women who succumb to this disease because they have not been able to get appropriate and early treatment for this disease. Actually breast cancer can be treated easily and can be cured completely if the woman affected by the disease reports early and undergoes adequate and appropriate early treatment. The simplest method and the best method of preventing the problems associated with breast cancer are to identify and also treat the disease as early as possible.

The mammogram should ideally be done for each and every woman above the age of 40 every year. This will help to prevent the breast cancer if detected from spreading to other parts of the body. Every woman should know and also do a breast self examination every year and should have a check up done by a experienced physician at least once in three years. Women who have a high risk profile with family history of breast cancer should have mammogram done for them every year from the age of thirty itself.

Early diagnosis:

The easy method of identifying a breast cancer every early is to manually examine he breast and the next thing to do is to have a mammogram done very often. A mammogram is a diagnostic procedure that helps to identify the presence of any tumor in the breast. Every woman above the age of forty years will benefit from undergoing periodic mammograms every year. This is because a lot of changes in the person can happen in the one year and undergoing this test will help them to identify problems and changes.

Early treatment:

Once a lesion in the breast is identified through the mammogram the treatment for the breast cancer can be initiated. This is possible only because of the periodic mammogram that will be helpful to diagnose the problem. Early treatment that is initiated will not only save the life of the patient but also prevent relapse, exacerbations or any other morbidity. This is very important in terms of quality of life of the person after the treatment for the cancer is over.

Costs involved can be saved:

Once a person has a mammogram done at regular intervals, then they will be able to diagnose any cancer very early and this will save the individual a lot of costs. The economic benefits of mammograms being done regularly to diagnose any cancer are very high. This is the main reason for many people getting a mammogram done regularly.

Complications involved:

When a breast examination and mammogram are done every year for those at risk or at least once every three years for those who are very young, there are many complications that arise out of breast cancer which can be prevented. This is one of the important factors that should be considered and is also a very great advantage of regular screening for breast cancer using mammogram.

These are the various importances of periodic mammograms.
