Dr. Melissa Joyner is a radiation oncologist and the chair of the St. Joseph Medical Center Radiation Oncology department and Dr. Daisha Hayden is a radiologist on the medical staff at St. Joseph Medical Center. They discuss the simple steps for women to follow in order to detect any cancerous lumps in their breasts as early as possible. Experts recommend that beginning at age 40, women should get a yearly mammogram. The decision to get one saves the lives of over 6500 women every year who are diagnosed early enough that they can be cured. It's all very encouraging but we must keep up the awareness campaigns.
