CHICAGO (AP) – New mammogram advice from the American Cancer Society says most women should start annual screenings at age 45 instead of 40, a change that moves the group closer to guidelines from an influential advisory task force.
The cancer group also now advises switching to screening to every other year at 55. The task force recommends starting routine screening for breast cancer at age 50, then every other year.
