Recommendations for Breast Cancer Screening
Breast cancer prevention is a high priority at Southern Hills. Self-examinations are essential to ongoing breast care and early detection is the most effective cure.
To help guide you, here are the recommendations for breast cancer screenings:
- Monthly breast self examination starting at age 20
- Breast physical examination by a health care provider every three years starting at age 20: annual clinical breast physical exam starting at age 40
- Annual screening mammography starting at age 40
- Women 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year
- Women 55 and older can switch to mammogram every other year, or they can choose to continue yearly mammograms. Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live at least 10 more years.
