Dr. John West was featured on Good Day L.A. this morning to speak about the importance of mammograms and adding breast ultrasound for patients with dense breasts. He answered questions about when to start yearly mammograms, and how important 3D mammography is!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful story with us!
"I came across this Instagram page called @40not50 and thought this is to important not to share and make women aware that early detection is the key to survival. I had literally just turned 41 when I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Breast Cancer in October 2007. If I would have waited till 50 I WOULD NOT BE HERE NOW and I have 4 daughters so this is dear to my heart. I would not have seen any of my daughters graduate high school or college and would not have seen my daughter Lianne get married this year. I hope insurance companies continue to provide yearly mammograms starting at age 40 NOT 50." #40not50 #cityofhope #cityofhopehospitaly

So many women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year under the age of 50 years old. 1 in 6 breast cancers are detected in women ages 40-49.
We believe yearly screening mammography should begin at age 40 but the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends waiting to start mammograms at age 50!

Please join with us.

If you were diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 50 we want to encourage you to tag us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter 40 not 50 and Breastlink with your photo and the age you were diagnosed using the hashtag #40not50!

With your help we can raise awareness about this issue and help give countless women a fighting chance to detect breast cancer when curable. Starting mammograms at age 40 saves lives!
