American Cancer Society changes mammogram guidelines

New breast cancer screening guidelines are out from the American Cancer Society, and they bump up the recommended age for a first mammogram from 40 to 45 for women at average risk for breast cancer.

The new guidelines also recommend that women transition to every other year screenings after the age of 55.
