Breast Care Guidelines

The following guidelines from the American Cancer Society for the early detection of breast cancer are an important part of a woman's health plan:

Age 20-39:

  • Have a clinical breast exam by a doctor or nurse every three years.
  • Do a breast self-exam every month.

Age 40 and over:

  • Have a mammogram every year.
  • Have a clinical breast exam by a doctor or nurse every year.
  • Do a breast self-exam every month.


These ages are used as a guideline. Please notify your physician of any concerns or questions you may have. If you have a history of breast cancer in your family, discuss mammography screening guidelines and scheduling with your health care provider.
