  • Physician orders aren’t needed for screening mammograms.
  • Same-day appointments are usually available.

A screening mammogram is an imaging examination of the breast using X-rays. The purpose of this test is to detect breast cancer early when lumps are less than 2 centimeters or smaller (most lumps are not felt by the hand when they are 1 centimeters or less in diameter).

According to the American Cancer Society, women between 40 and 44 have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year. Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year. The ACR (American College of Radiology) and SBI (Society of Breast Imaging) recommend yearly screening mammography beginning at age 40 for women of average risk and the ACOG (American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) recommends clinical breast exam may be offered every 1-3 years for women aged 25-39 years and may be offered annually for women 40 years and older.

Early detection of breast cancer means that treatment can be started earlier in the course of the disease, possibly before it has spread. If you have a family history of breast cancer, you should consult with your physician for age appropriate screening.
