If you’ve not been for a mammogram before, just the thought can be a little daunting, especially if you’ve heard people say that it hurts. While some women might suffer discomfort for that few moments that the breast is compressed and the X-ray is taken, those few uncomfortable moments can save your life in the long run, as it can detect the cancer early.
Women who find out that they have breast cancer through mammograms are more likely to benefit from breast-conserving therapies (as opposed to having to go for a masectomy), and are less likely to die from the disease. In fact, the survival rate of Stage 1 breast cancer is 99% at five years, as opposed to Stage III, where the survival rate drops to 57%.
