Who Should Have a Mammogram?
With an early diagnosis and timely treatment plan, women with breast cancer can have excellent outcomes. Beginning at age 40, women should have a yearly mammogram. If you have certain risk factors, your doctor may suggest you have a mammogram at an earlier age.
Monthly breast self-examination and an annual breast physical examination by your physician are also important to good breast health.
