Breast cancer resources
To prevent breast cancer, every woman over the age of 40 should do self exams and get an annual mammogram.
Washington State has one of the highest rates of breast cancer in the country. But, studies also show Washington rates about 22, 23 in the nation in mammography screening rates.
Doctors say mammography, although not perfect, is the best tool available for detecting breast cancer early, when it's still curable.
