Mammograms and breast exams aren’t enough, especially for women under 50! Mammograms and breast exams don’t work that well in women under 50 because younger breasts are too dense. Mammograms have saved a lot of lives, but did you know that by the time a lump is visible on a mammogram it’s been growing inside you undetected for about 8 years? And by the time you feel a lump it’s been growing about 10 years? My doctor offers a new test that checks for precancerous cells years before anything would be seen on a mammogram. The idea is to identify the problem before it’s cancer so you have a shot at preventing it. It’s called the HALO test. Some women say they wouldn’t want to know but I believe knowledge is power, and we make the best decisions when we’re informed.
