How often should you get a mammogram?
Despite conflicting reports in the news, those most closely associated with breast cancer know the value of starting annual mammograms at age 40, and possibly younger if you are at high risk. When cancer occurs in younger women, it tends to be more aggressive and faster-growing.
New evidence supports starting screening earlier than 40 years of age for high risk women. This includes African American women and women with a family history of breast cancer.
A survey conducted by the Society for Women’s Health Research revealed that while 4 out of 5 women agree mammograms are important, only 54% actually get them.
