What do the new breast cancer screening guidelines recommend about when to start yearly mammograms?

SBI Board Member, Debra Monticciolo, MD, breaks down the new ACS guidelines by explaining what has changed and why annual mammograms beginning at age 40 are recommended in an article published in The Conversation. She writes, "In translation: the ACS does not recommend abandoning beginning mammography screening at age 40. Their findings suggest that the majority of women would and should choose this option and be screened annually starting at age 40."
