The Power of Prevention: Breast & Cervical Cancer Screenings

Screenings play an important role in catching small health problems before they become big ones. For breast cancer and cervical cancer, screenings can be lifesavers.


Breast Cancer: About 1 in 8 American women will get breast cancer at some point in her life. Each year about 280,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are diagnosed in the U.S. Screening mammograms can find breast cancer early when it's easier to treat.


Cervical Cancer: About 14,000 new cases of invasive cervical cancer are diagnosed each year. Roughly 4,000 women will die annually from the cancer. The good news: with regular screenings, cervical cancer is now among the easiest gynecological cancers to prevent and treat.
