Rate This

How often do you get a breast self-exam, and how often should you get your routine mammograms? Since the U.S. Preventive Services task force’s early detection against breast cancer recommendations came out, those are the two biggest questions in women’s health.

Hi, this is Todd Hartley for EmpowHer where it’s our job to clear up the confusion and present all credible sides so you can make the most informed health decisions possible.

Now fortunately there are two members of EmpowHer’s Medical Advisory Board that are perfectly placed to provide you the most credible breast health information possible – Dr. Bernadette Melnyk, who sits on the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force that made the government’s breaking news recommendation, and on the other side of the issue, Dr. Jay Harness, the President of Breast Surgeons International.
