New Breast Cancer Guideline!

New Breast Cancer Guideline!
October 24, 2015

The American Cancer Society has released new guidelines for breast cancer screening. Among the changes, the new recommendations say all women should begin having yearly mammograms at age 45, and can change to having mammograms every other year beginning at age 55.

The guidelines were published October 20, 2015 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The highlight of the recommendation is women should be able to start the screening as early as age 40, if they want to. It’s a good idea to start talking to your health care provider at age 40 about when you should begin screening. At age 55, women should have mammograms every other year – though women who want to keep having yearly mammograms should be able to do so.
