Breast cancer screening recommendations
The specialists at Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at John Randolph Medical Center suggest the following breast cancer screening guidelines:
- Start monthly breast self-exams beginning at 20 years old
- Have an annual mammogram screening from 40 to 74 years old (if you are not at high risk of developing breast cancer)
Discuss any family history of breast cancer with your doctor, who will determine if you have certain risk factors that put you at high-risk for the disease. If you are high risk, your doctor may suggest beginning breast cancer screenings at an earlier age or having screenings to look deeper into the breast tissue.
Preparing for your mammogram
If your doctor recommends you undergo a mammogram, remember to:
- Schedule your mammogram after your menstrual cycle, when your breasts are less tender.
- Wear a two-piece outfit on the day of your mammogram.
- Avoid the use of deodorant, talcum powder or lotion under your arms or near your breasts on the day of your exam.
- Bring any previous mammogram or test results with you if they were done at a different imaging center.
- Tell your physician and radiologist if there is a chance you are pregnant.
