Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before a lump is big enough to feel or has spread to other parts of your body.
Most breast cancers are found in women who are 50 years old or older, but breast cancer also affects younger women. About 10% of all new cases of breast cancer are found in women younger than 45 years old.
The American Cancer Society recommends women ages 40-49 should have a mammogram once a year. Those 50 or older should get them every two years.
If you have a family history of breast cancer or other risk factors, visit your doctor you might need to have mammograms.
