Question:How Often should you get a mamogram?

Answer:

Get your mamogram ASAP if you're in your early 40s and have never had one. I was diagnosed with cancer at age 42 - with no family history at all and no symptoms. It was my first baseline mamogram and it probably saved me life.

Answer:

Experts say once per year after the age of 40. You may get them earlier if you have a family history of breast cancer.
