Breast Cancer:

Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it’s easiest to treat. According to the Centers for Disease Control, when it’s detected early and in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate of breast cancer is 99%.+ Cancer doesn’t wait, and neither should you.

Colon Cancer:

Colorectal cancer develops from abnormal growths in the colon or rectum. A screening can find these abnormalities and cancer early, when treatment works best. When colon cancer is found at an early stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is about 90%, but only about 4 out of 10 colorectal cancers are found at this early stage.++
