Women of average risk should:
- Yearly mammograms for women age 40 to 44, and/or yearly mammograms as an option after educating women on the importance of such tests
- Clinical breast exam (CBE) about every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over
- Yearly mammograms for women age 45 to 54
- Mammograms every other year for women over age 55
- Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast changes to a health care provider right away. A breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.
Some women – because of their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors – should be screened with MRIs in addition to mammograms.
