Mammography Guidelines

In light of the recent U.S. Preventive Services Task Force's statement that most women do not need screening mammography before the age of 50, St. Luke's breast radiologists and surgeons would like our patients to know that we continue to support the guidelines previously established by the American Cancer Society. These guidelines are also supported by the American College of Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging. Research shows that cancer is the most treatable when it's detected early.

Mammography Guidelines:
  • Age 40 and over:
    • Annual screening mammogram
    • Annual clinical breast exam by a doctor or nurse (this exam should be done near the time of the mammogram)
    • Monthly breast self-examination
  • Age 20 to 39:
    • Clinical breast exam by a doctor or nurse every three years
    • Monthly breast self-examination
We will continue to monitor the situation and make recommendations based on the best interests of our patients.
