A mammogram can find lumps in the breast before they can even be felt with the fingers.
When cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat or cure.
- If you are between the ages of 40 and 49, talk with your primary care provider (PCP) to see if it is time for you to get a mammogram.
- If you are between the ages of 50 and 75, it is important to get a mammogram every one to two years. Contact your PCP to see if you are due for a mammogram. If you are due, ask how to schedule the appointment.
Your PCP’s phone number is listed on your HPSM member ID card.
