BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Lack of Mammograms Can Affect Your Health |  local news

“You’re better off knowing you have cancer today than knowing tomorrow, because you have additional time for treatment. Women should be really vigilant and control any health care risks they can. A mammogram gives you some control.” Following her diagnosis, Cook spoke with people close to her and learned some had skipped their annual screening because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She took it upon herself to hold those women accountable to schedule an appointment. Experts expect a greater number of many cancers since the start of the pandemic. They advise women perform regular breast self-examination and receive annual mammograms, starting at age 40, unless there is a family history of breast cancer.

Cook said she has always been proactive and dedicated to getting annual mammograms. Then came their diagnosis: “We think this is an early cancer.”

“It’s 10 minutes that can save your life,” she advised. “It was the key for me – going from no problem in March 2020 to early cancer in March 2021.” “I knew this wasn’t like other times I had been called back,” she said. “My imaging navigator and radiologist were very frank with me. They showed me images they were concerned about.”
