Schedule Your Mammogram Today

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Kendall County Health Department reminds women that early detection through regular screenings, especially for women at high risk, leads to better outcomes. If you have missed or delayed your mammogram this year due to COVID-19, now is the time to take care of yourself. Call your doctor and schedule your mammogram today. It’s not too late.


Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, other than skin cancer. Routine mammograms and breast exams are often critical in detecting cancer early, before it has spread, and while it is easier to treat successfully. Symptoms of breast cancer vary, and some people do not experience any symptoms. Some warning signs of breast cancer include: 

  • Any change in the size or the shape of the breast.
  • Pain in any area of the breast.
  • Nipple discharge other than breast milk (including blood).
  • A new lump in the breast or underarm.


Many factors throughout a lifetime can influence a person’s breast cancer risk. To reduce this risk, individuals can take care of their health by:  

  • Keeping a healthy weight and exercising regularly.
  • Avoiding alcohol or limiting consumption. 
  • Asking their doctor about the risks of taking hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills.
  • Breastfeeding their children, if possible.
