The specific recommendations for when to start breast cancer screening vary depending on a woman’s individual risk factors. For example, women with a family history of breast cancer or who have dense breasts may need to start screening earlier than age 30.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends that women at average risk for breast cancer start screening with a mammogram every 1-2 years starting at age 45. However, women can start screening as early as age 40 if they prefer.
In addition to mammograms, women should also perform monthly breast self-exams (BSEs) starting in their 20s. BSEs can help women become familiar with the normal look and feel of their breasts so that they can detect any changes early.
If you are a woman over 30, talk to your doctor about your breast cancer risk and when to start screening. You should also be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, such as a lump in the breast, changes in the size or shape of the breast, dimpling of the skin, or nipple discharge. If you notice any of these changes, see your doctor right away.
Early detection of breast cancer is important because it can lead to more successful treatment. By following the recommended screening guidelines and performing monthly BSEs, you can help reduce your risk of dying from breast cancer.
