What is a mammogram?
A mammogram is a special x-ray of the breast to look for any problems within the breast.
How Often Should I Have a Mammogram?
According to the American Cancer Society, women should have the choice to start screening with yearly mammograms as early as age 40. You and your physician can decide what is best for you.
Women who have had cancer, breast problems or a family history of breast cancer may need to have mammograms earlier and more frequently.
It is important that you talk with your physician about the frequency that is right for you.
