Be Pink
Be Pink encourages women to be empowered in the fight against breast cancer by promoting the importance of early detection and supporting education, outreach and annual screening mammograms for women in our community. 

Be Aware

  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer; most have no family history of the disease. 
  • When breast cancer first develops, there may be no symptoms at all. That's why screening is so important.
  • Although most people think of breast cancer as affecting women, men can develop cancer as well. 
  •  


Be Proactive
Finding breast cancer early and treating it is the best way to prevent death from the disease. Breast cancer does not cause symptoms in the early stages, so it's important to have screening exams and tests. At the Jane Brattain Breast center, we support the American Cancer Society's recommendations for breast cancer screening, which are:

Mammograms:

  • Age 40 and older—Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.

Clinical breast exam:

  • Age 20-39—ranges from every year to every three years
  • Age 40 and older—every year


Breast self-exam is optional for women starting in their 20's. Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast change to their health care provider. 

If you have an increased risk of breast cancer (i.e., family history, a genetic tendency or certain other factors), you may need to start having mammograms done at an earlier age. Talk to your doctor about your history and whether you should have additional tests at an earlier age. 

Schedule your annual screening mammogram and encourage the women in your life to schedule theirs, too. Park Nicollet offers mammography appointments at five convenient locations. For appointments, call 952-993-3700.
