Mammograms
Im 24 years old and have never gone to get a Mammogram before. I check myself quite regularily and was wondering if there is a certain time we should go get one?? is it only when you find something to be concerned about or should it be done regularily?
thanx!

Mammograms are usually recommended yearly but only after the age of 40. One exception would be if a person is considered to be at very high risk for breast cancer. This test is not very valuable in younger women as the breast tissue is quite dense. Monthly self exams should be done and a clinical breast exam should also be done yearly (this is a breast exam done by your Physician).  Regards ....
