More than 75% of breast and cervical cancers occur in women over age 50. A woman's risk of getting cancer increases with age. In Kansas each year, about 370 women die of breast cancer and about 30 die from cervical cancer. Regular mammograms among women age 50-69 can reduce deaths by 30%. Routine screening and prompt treatment can reduce illness and deaths from breast or cervical cancer.
