Mammograms & screenings

When you should start mammograms will depend on your personal and family history of cancer. It's important to talk with your OB/GYN about when you should begin mammograms. They will be able to explain the risks and benefits of mammograms so that you can make an informed decision about screening.

The American Cancer Society recommends:

  • Women age 40-44 talk with their doctor about their risk for breast cancer and whether they need to start regular mammograms.
  • Women age 45-54 should get a yearly mammogram.
  • Women older than 55 can continue a yearly mammogram or switch to every two years.

Roper St. Francis Healthcare offers complete mammogram services, including 3D mammograms. These services are available at five locations, including:

Aside from mammograms, women of all ages should know how their breasts normally look and feel. No matter your age, make sure to talk with your doctor about any breast changes.
