Yearly mammograms to detect breast cancer and precancerous changes are recommended for women starting at age 40. Clinical breast exams should be conducted every three years for women in their 20s and 30s and annually for women 40 and over.
Our breast health specialists also recommend women starting in their 20s do breast self-exams monthly to identify color changes, skin irregularities, lumps and changes in the nipples.
