Upstate Mammography Van to Visit LaFayetteBreast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, affecting one in eight women. It's also one of the most treatable cancers when detected early. Mammograms - x-rays of the breasts - are the most effective screening procedure for the early signs of breast cancer.
