Understanding mammography guidelines

  • Should I have a screening mammogram?
  • When should I start?
  • How often should I have a breast screening?

There is a lot of confusion and contradictory information about mammography guidelines these days. But the breast health experts at VCU Health want to put your mind at ease with clear and simple recommendations regarding screening mammograms.

We recommend that women at average risk for breast cancer should have a mammogram every year beginning at age 40 and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. Ask your doctor if you are unsure of your risk for breast cancer.

“I went to VCU Health for my routine mammogram on my lunch break. As always, the staff and techs were respectful of my time and comfort. When cancer was suspected and I returned for a biopsy, the procedure commenced in the utmost succinct manner. The doctor was kind, professional and very well spoken, and I appreciated the empathy she showed me. I am grateful that my cancer was detected early and accurately — it saved my life.”
