Who Should Receive Screening Mammography?

The National Cancer Institute recommends that women begin receiving screening mammograms every one to two years at 40 years of age and every year once they reach 50 years of age. Since the number of breast cancer diagnoses rises significantly when women reach their forties, annual screening mammography can help detect breast cancers at an early stage, when treatment is most likely to be successful.

Women in their 40s should get mammograms every one to two years. Beginning at age 50, mammography should be performed every year.
