October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Niagara Health, in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, is encouraging women to participate in the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) as soon as they’re eligible and make mammograms part of their routine medical care.                        Mammograms can find breast cancer when it’s small, less likely to have spread and easier to treat. The OBSP offers free screening mammograms to women aged 50 to 74 with no signs of breast cancer as part of their routine medical care. It’s recommended that these women get a mammogram every two years since early detection through mammography can result in significant health benefits including increased treatment options and better survival rates.
