It's the second deadliest cancer among women in the United States behind lung cancer, and 1 percent of the breast cancer diagnoses are men.
"1 out of every 9 women, at some time in their life, will get breast cancer. Early detection with mammography is very important to save lives," says Dr. Edward Lampton, a Radiologist at Waynesboro Hospital.
According to medical statistics, nearly 40,000 people died from breast cancer last year.
