The Importance of Mammography

October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer for women, after skin cancer. Every year, 1 in 8 women (13%) develop breast cancer.1 This rate is predicted to continue climbing in coming years, in part driven by a rise in breast cancer diagnoses in women under 50.2

In this video, Brown & Brown’s National Clinical Leader, Dr. Louise Short, explains the importance of mammograms in the detection and treatment of breast cancer.
