The best care

Most organizations recommend annual breast cancer screening beginning at age 40. However, the U.S. Preventative Task Force recommends beginning at 50. This discrepancy partially reflects the field’s competing focuses on increasing early detection (beginning screening at 40) and reducing the rate of false positives (beginning screening at 50). Because of these discrepancies, you should discuss the best screening routine for you with your doctor taking into account your family history of breast cancer, genetic makeup, and other factors.

What is a mammogram?

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast made by using low doses of radiation to create an image. Doctors analyze these X-rays for masses or microcalcifications that may indicate the presence of breast cancer. Mammograms are used for diagnosis and screening to detect breast cancer early when it’s most easily treated.
