When should women get a mammogram

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in women and one in eight women in the U.S. will get it.

The good news is most women can survive if it’s found early.

And one of the best ways to detect it early is a mammogram.

Dr. Jeffrey Weigle from the Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis Hospital discusses who should get screened and when and how often they should get a mammogram.
