Mammogram Screening Guidelines
Our Breast Health physicians have reviewed clinical data about the effectiveness of mammogram screening.
We recommend women follow the current American Cancer Society guidelines below. Mammography has proven to save lives through early detection.
- Screening mammogram beginning at age 40 for all women
- An annual clinical breast exam by a doctor
- Monthly breast self exams
- Specific mammogram screening guidelines can be discussed with your OhioHealth physician
Women should talk to their doctors about the screening that is right for their individual needs. Women at high risk for breast cancer may need more frequent or earlier mammogram screening.
