For women age 40 and over, an annual screening mammogram is the best weapon for early detection of breast cancer. A mammogram is essentially when an x-ray of the chest is taken and then examined by a medical doctor to evaluate. They can use this x-ray to discern if there are any abnormalities present and whether or not they could be cancerous.
