Don’t put your mammogram on hold any longer
A recent study showed that almost 60% of women postponed their regular mammogram during the pandemic. While protecting yourself and your family remains important, screening tests like mammograms are as important as ever because early detection is the best way to protect yourself against breast cancer.
If you’ve put off your mammogram — or you’re having symptoms you’re concerned about — it’s time to get back on track.

Why and When You Need a Mammogram
The purpose of a mammogram is to find breast cancer before it causes symptoms, like a lump you can feel. How often you have a mammogram depends on your age and risk factors.* If your risk for breast cancer is average and you are between the ages of:
- 40 to 49 — Ask your healthcare provider when to start*
- 50 to 74 — You should have a mammogram every other year
- 75 and up — You should make a customized plan with your provider
*Women with a family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child with the disease) and other risks may benefit from starting breast cancer screening before age 50. Talk to your healthcare provider about the screening schedule that’s best for you.
