Mammograms may be uncomfortable, but they're too important to put off! Doctors believe the mammogram is the best way to catch cancer early when it's in the most curable stage. Now there's new evidence that proves this. A recent study looked at the breast cancer rate for ten years. Researchers found the death rate from breast cancer dropped almost 25 percent.

It doesn't take much time and it's a test that could actually save your life.
