Mammogram schedule: When & how often to get mammograms at what age varies depending upon who you ask (as well as your Family History). Check out http://goo.gl/sg2NP7, http://goo.gl/vJyiUL & http://goo.gl/3eu4HP. In general, recommendations start at 40-50yo for low risk individuals. This is best addressed by your Family Doc.
