While breast cancer is more common in people over the age of 40, this disease can be more aggressive and metastatic for the nearly 7% of Millennials (under 40 years old) who are diagnosed.*
This group falls outside the recommended age group for routine mammograms, causing a potential delay in needed medical treatment or a more advanced condition for those affected by breast cancer.

Why You Should Check Urself
According to the National Cancer Institute: Approximately 12,000 women age 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.*
Checking our breasts and chests for lumps is a quick and easy way to potentially catch anything early, since those of us under the age 40 typically don’t get routine mammograms. It only takes a few minutes and you only need to do this once every month.
