In brief: Start annually age40

Annual mammography starting at age 40 is recommended by majority.
This is recommendation of the american cancer society, the american college of radiology, the american college of obstetrics and gynecology, as well as many others. If one has relatives (specially first-degree relatives) with breast cancer in young age, screening should start earlier.

In brief: Yearly after 40

In the abscence of other risk factors, get a baseline mammogram between 35 to 40 and yearly mammogram after age 40.
If there are other risk factors such as family histry of breast cancer you may have to start earlier. Check with your physician.
