National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older and breast cancer deaths have declined.

 

This is exciting progress, but there are still women who do not take advantage of early detection at all and others who do not get screening mammograms and clinical breast exams at regular intervals. {Insert any or all of the following bullets, depending on your goal.}

 

· Women age 65 and older are less likely to get mammograms than younger women, even though breast cancer risk   increases with age.

· Hispanic women have fewer mammograms than Caucasian women and African American women.

· Women below poverty level are less likely than women at higher incomes to have had a mammogram within the past two years.

· Mammography use has increased for all groups except American Indians and Alaska Natives.
