New 2015 Guidelines for mammograms from the American Cancer Society

BREAST CANCER SCREENING FOR WOMEN AT AVERAGE RISK
2015 GUIDELINE UPDATE FROM THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
1) Regular screening mammography starting at age 45
2) Women aged 45-54 should be screened annually
3) Women 55 years and older should transition to biennial screening...
I guess that I have to go with the evidence based data regarding these guidelines. Don't forget, though, these guidelines are for average risk women. Women who have a family history of breast cancer require earlier and more frequent mammography.
