Screening

At present, the mammogram is the recommended screening test for breast cancer. Guidelines at the age and frequency of mammograms change as more information is gathered, so check with your healthcare provider about what is right for you. Currently the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), American Cancer Society (ACS), American College of Radiology (ACR) all recommend generally yearly mammograms starting at the age of 40. Although it is not clear whether doing breast self examinations improve detection, women should be aware and look for changes in their breasts. Check with your healthcare provider about what is right for you.

Women who are at high risk for developing breast cancer are advised to discuss options with their healthcare provider.
