Biennial screening mammography is recommended. Women aged 50 to 54 years should get mammograms every year. Women aged 55 years and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or have the choice to continue yearly screening. Screening with mammography and clinical breast exam annually.

For women aged 50 to 69 years, screening with mammography is recommended. For instance, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force mammogram guidelines recommend women begin screening at age 50 and the American Cancer Society recommends women begin screening at age 45. But both of these organizations acknowledge that beginning screening at 40 may make sense for some women after considering the benefits and limitations of the test. The latest guideline applies to women at average risk for breast cancer.

Among other recommendations, it says all women should begin having yearly mammograms by age 45, and can change to having mammograms every other year beginning at age 55.

After reevaluating its 2002 screening recommendations, the USPSTF stated that the potential harm from annual mammograms beginning at age 40 outweighs any benefit. It now recommends that women 50 to 74 have routine mammograms every other year.

It no longer recommends annual routine screenings for women beginning at age 40 or beyond age 75. Breast Cancer Screening Guidelines The American Cancer Society recommends that women undergo regular screening mammography for the early detection of breast cancer. American Cancer Society Breast Cancer Screening Guideline (2015) Full text: ACS recommendations (and rationale) for breast cancer screening. Getting a mammogram — A mammogram (“mammography”) is a breast X-ray. It is the best screening test for reducing the risk of dying from breast cancer.

Before the mammogram, you will be asked to undress from the waist up and wear a hospital gown. Each breast is X-rayed individually. The previous ACS guidelines, released in 2012, advised screening to begin at age 21. “Women can start (testing) later. They can do it less frequently,” said Dr.
