Women have been told to get a mammogram every year starting at age 40 – but questions remain:

  • Why 40 and why every year?
  • What is the downside to getting checked – or not checked – each year for breast cancer?
  • What are “overdiagnosis” and “false positive exams” and should they affect when I get tested?
  • What is a breast cancer risk assessment and why should I do that at 30 (instead of 40)?

New Mammography Saves Lives (MSL) coalition* videos and downloadable resources answer questions, clear confusion and help women talk with their doctors about when to get screened for the most common cancer in women.
