When breast cancer is caught early, the survival rate is nearly 100 percent, and the five-year relative survival rate of women with localized cancer, an early stage of the disease, is 99 percent. So it's important to get regular breast screenings.

An initial baseline mammogram is recommended for women when they reach age 40, regardless of their risk factors, followed by annual screening mammograms

In this video, University Hospitals breast radiology specialist Donna Plecha, MD, explains the importance of early detection of breast cancer and the process of getting a mammogram.
