  • Women with average risk for breast cancer:
    • between 40 and 44 years of age have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year;
    • between 45 to 54 schedule a yearly mammogram;
    • and any woman over 55 and older can switch to a mammogram every other year or choose to continue yearly mammograms
  • Women who are at high risk for breast cancer based on certain factors:
    • should get an MRI and a mammogram every year, typically starting at age 30.
