Screening for and diagnosing breast cancer: what you need to know You might know you should get a regular screening mammogram for breast cancer, but at what age should you start? Should you get one more or less often as you get older? And if you get called back for another scan, what does that mean? Should you worry?

Get answers to these questions and more in an upcoming webinar with Megan Frost, MD, a board-certified general surgeon and member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

Dr. Frost will guide you through the science of diagnostic breast imaging, including mammography, ultrasound and MRI, and explain what to expect if you are called back for more imaging. There will be a question-and-answer session after her presentation.

Dr. Frost is a surgeon with Asante Physician Partners–General Surgery. She holds a master's in public health and has special interests in breast cancer, preventive medicine and high-quality and cost-efficient care.
