Mammograms are low-dose x-rays of the breast.  A regular mammogram can help find breast cancer at an early stage when treatment is most likely to be successful.  A mammogram can detect breast changes that could be cancer years before physical symptoms develop.  The American Cancer Society recommends the following guidelines for women at average risk for breast cancer:

  • Women between 40-44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year
  • Women 45-54 should get mammograms every year
  • Women 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms

According to the American Cancer Society, a woman is considered to be at average risk if she doesn’t have a personal history of breast cancer, a strong family history of breast cancer, or a genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer. You should contact your medical provider for recommended guidelines on mammograms if you do not fit in the average risk category.
