    Breast cancer screening refers to the regular breast examinations recommended by doctors to detect breast cancer before symptoms develop. The purpose of these examinations is to find breast cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages. APCC recommends screening at age-specific levels:

    Women aged 40 to 44 should start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms (X-rays of the breast).

    Women aged 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.

    Women aged 55 and above should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or continue yearly screening

    Ultrasound can be recommended for women with dense breast tissue

    All women should consider performing a monthly self-breast exam beginning at age 20 and become familiar with their breasts so they are better able to notice changes.

    Some women have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer. For such cases, APCC recommends:

    A clinical breast exam every six months

    Annual mammogram starting at age 25

    An annual breast MRI
