When to have a mammogram?

Based on the results of studies by the National Cancer Institute in the USA, an annual mammography screening is recommended for all women starting at age 40 to effectively prevent breast tumours at an early stage. Only those women who are at risk should get annual screening before this age. This includes women with family, genetic, reproductive, or personal histories.


Correct indications for requesting breast imaging and detection studies




Physical examination

Each year this is performed for those who use the health service. Monthly breast self-examination.




Women under 35 years of age, mammogram only if there is a high risk.

Women aged 35-49, every 2 years after age 40, for women at risk.

Women over age 50, annual mammogram.
