Komen Wisconsin: The importance of getting your mammograms

NEXT:

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – CBS 58 is working with Komen Wisconsin to share important and potentially life-saving information every week. Komen Wisconsin Executive Director Nikki Panico visited CBS 58 on Tuesday, Oct. 15 to talk about the importance of getting screened.

Panico answered the following questions:

  • Why is it so important to be screened regularly?
  • What is Komen Wisconsin doing to help women get their annual screenings?
  • Reminders about getting screened

It’s important to talk to your doctor about which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk. Have a mammogram every year starting at age 40, if you are at average risk. Have a clinical breast exam at least every three y ears starting at 20, and every year starting at 40.
