The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have revised recommendations for breast cancer screening of average-risk women:

  1. Women should discuss with their physician if they should start mammography at 50 years old, and screening every 2 years is reasonable for those age 55 or older.
  2. Women should be screened until age 75.
  3. Clinical breast exams should be offered to women aged 25-39 every 1-3 years and each year after age 40.

LifeTip: Openly discuss with your physician the potential risks and benefits of mammography.
