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.
