The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that most women age 50-74 should have a screening mammogram every 2 years. 


Women 40-49 years old and those who think they may have a higher risk of breast cancer are advised to speak with their doctors about when to have a screening mammogram.  The CDC Breast Cancer Fact Sheet (attached below) includes risk factors and warning signs.
