• Women 75 and over: Can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider.
• Screening mammograms are not recommended for those under age 40: Talk to your health care provider if concerned about having an increased risk of breast cancer.

Why are mammograms important? Screening mammograms are routine tests used to find early signs of cancer in individuals who have no breast problems or symptoms. They can find changes in the breast that are too small to be felt. Early detection with mammograms is one of the reasons that most women (89%) are now surviving breast cancer.
