BREAST CANCER: 2015
- At age 55, women should have mammograms every other year – though, again, women who prefer to continue yearly mammograms may do so.
- Regular mammograms should continue for as long as a woman is in good health.
- Breast exams, either from a medical provider or self-exams, are no longer recommended. Still, the ACS says all women should be familiar with how their breasts normally look and feel and report any changes to their health care provider right away.
