The American Cancer Society (ACS), after a careful review of research data by clinicians and public health specialists, published new guidelines for women at average risk for breast cancer. Here are the highlights:

  • First mammogram at age 45 and yearly until age 54.
  • At age 55 have a mammogram every two years.
  • Breast exams by clinicians are no longer necessary.

LifeTip: Be aware of how your breasts look and feel, and report changes to your clinician immediately. For more cancer-preventing recommendations, watch “Prevent Cancer Naturally” by Dr. David DeRose.
