Women are advised to get a mammogram every 1 to 2 years starting at age 40. Women at a higher risk for breast cancer should seek expert medical advice about getting mammograms. Ask your doctor about your risk for breast cancer. You can also use the Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool at www.cancer.gov/bcrisktool
