Who is eligible for a mammogram?
• Women 50 - 74: this group is most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer, which is why they should plan to get a mammogram every 2 years until they turn 75. This group can self-refer.
• For women 40 - 49: screening is optional and they should discuss the risks and benefits of screening with their health care provider. A referral is needed for their first mammogram, which are available online here.
• Women 75 and over can continue screening and should discuss the risks and benefits with their health care provider, and may also self-refer.
• Screening mammograms are not recommended for women under age 40. Women in this age group should discuss their breast cancer risk and screening options with their health care provider.
