This Could Save Your Life

Doctors at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital – Needham want to remind women how important annual mammograms are to detecting breast cancer early.,
Certain things become a matter of routine, especially when it comes to safeguarding your health. Visit the dentist every six months, see your doctor every year (or two, depending on your age), get your eyes checked out every other year. These rhythms can keep you running smoothly, and avoid you being caught off-guard by a medical crisis. The physicians over at BID-Needham have one of these visits for women in particular to add to their lists: a yearly mammogram. It could make all the difference in the world.
